JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my section are from the Beverly Air Show that took place on September 8th and 9th. If you want to see more of the photos I took, I created an album on my photography page. It is on Facebook, but you don't need an account to see the photos. CLICK FOR THE PHOTO ALBUM. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
