Hans' Collage of Pics

This collage of snapshots were taken during the late 1940's by Hans Fredericks mostly around Seattle.  The carriers in the distant shots are the "Bon Hom Richard" and "Bunker Hill".  The old Model A was what they jokingly called their Secret Weapon.  The bottom pic shows Hans in the center on liberty in Coco Solo, Panama as the ship was first entering the Pacific on it's way to San Diego, it's new home port.
