Ever hear of the FSA? A photo project associated with it is described at:
http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/fsa/

Search it with terms like torpedo, PT boat, etc. and find a few shots of the Higgins plant. Seen these before anywhere else?

Sometimes they have good scans; other times, not so much... but good copies could be had from the Library if needed, I suppose.

A veritable feast for C.J., Jerry, and all the Higgins crewmen and fans!

Love these classic vintage photos -- thanks, Pat.

Take care,

And there are more at the linked site... search on "higgins", and find more shots of men working on boats, with some nice details.
