Aloha from Johnston Island
Old Pictures

A few old pictures I've acquired the last couple of years

I don't know the exact date on alot of these, and I don't remember who sent me some of them, but I thought I'd pass them on for your enjoyment

The underground Dispensary that used to be just east of the Library/BX. The sand volleyball court was there last.

Just a few barrels of Agent Orange??  The dark spots in the coral is the agent leaking out. This was on the north-west corner of the island

This picture isn't that old, but it goes along with the one to the right. It's the Ham Shack taken inside the largest room on the north end of building 30

I believe this picture is from the 70's. We used the south end for parts storage and the other end was Ham radio when I was there, and at one time the island radio station was in it.
