Palmer Station Construction
Laying out the pieces...
Preparing for more of the foundation...Seabees of MCB-6
were assisted by crewmen from the Edisto
helicopters made things lots easier, since there is no pier, a
very poor landing site for small craft, and a lousy road up the hill.
Putting the roof on the first section of the structure.
The nearly completed structure from the back.
Some of the original fuel bladders behind the station.
All of these are U. S. Navy photos are from the DF-65
Navy crusebook except for the last one which appeared
in the Bulletin of the US Antarctic Projects Officer,
Vol. 6, No. 7; Summer 1965.
