Life Magazine Picture Archive - post Nov 1943 Photographs
« on: October 31, 2019, 03:35:52 pm »
Several years ago the Time-Life photo archive had posted quite a few Tarawa pictures from shortly post battle into 1944.  Many of these are color and still available.  I recall that they included 4-5 photos of SeaBees inspecting the Sadu Maru scuttled off the reef at Betio.  Apparently I did not save these photos and now I cannot find them on the internet.  Anyone save these photos?

I remember the photo set it, was on the old Tarawa Talk many years ago, all Life prints, I was able to get a enlarged print with my Dad in one frame. I also did not save it but found a small group of of pics on this site, the photographer is J Eyerman , Life magazine.   http://www.vintag.es/2015/08/rare-color-photographs-of-american.html

Only 2 or 3 of those photos were taken on Betio Island where 99% of the battle took place.
