Description:

DIMENSIONS: 8.5 " X 11" (small variances can occur).

PROVENANCE: This historical photograph is from the heir/daughter of Chuck Pond. This is the exactly information we received from the daugther of Mr. Pond: "My dad was Chuck Pond, he was an aerial photographer for the Air Force, He later went to work for a company called Aerojet in Sacramento Ca. Aerojet was contracted by NASA to build and test rockets, my dad worked in the photo dept.and was given any film that was taken during any rocket testing and any pictures that were taken when they sent any of the Gemini rockets into space, this included pictures from the first moonwalk. My dad worked for Aerojet for many years until they closed down in the late 60s to early 70s. These are pictures my dad developed and printed while working at Aerojet.". We have carefully reviewed this photograph and after a deep analysis and according with our experience it corresponds to the period of the Missions Apollo and Gemini during the 1960s. This photo was printed in KODAK Paper (The printing KODAK PAPER was commonly used in the 1960s and early 1970s) and in our opinion it is original from the negative. According with our conversation with the heir of Mr. Chuck Pond, the original negative might be in NASA possession.

IMPORTANCE: Historical photographs are very important. They are a wonderful way to remember what happened in the past. Historians examine them to see what life was like in the period they were shot. Historical photos can yield a lot of information and they are now part of important collections including The Library of Congress, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and many National Archives around the world.
