The nearly completed structure from the back.
Some of the original fuel bladders behind the station. There was a 50,000 gallon supply.
All of the black-and-white photos are U. S. Navy photos are from the DF-65 Navy cruisebook except for the last one (fuel bladders) which appeared in the Bulletin of the US Antarctic Projects Officer, Vol. 6, No. 7; Summer 1965. The color photos are from 1965 winterover Jack Cummings from this blog page.
