OKINAWA HOME OF THE 1ST AIR DIVISION
The photos on this page are from a book titled "Okinawa, Home of the 1st Air Division", that is believed to have been produced in limited quantities for the upper levels of command at the 1st Air Division sometime in late 1946 or early 1947.
The book is hand made out of individual pages of photographic paper, each page being 10 inches by 10 inches, and having 4 small x by x prints on each page. A thin sheet of semi-transparent paper was placed between each photo page and the information as to what was on each photo was typed on the paper. The pages were then punched with holes and metal tabs inserted to bind the pages together in a stack of 25 pages, the spine and the metal tabs were then covered with tape.
The photos on this page show various scenes around Okinawa that would have been seen by any of the military personnel touring around the island.
