20th Air Force | 73rd Bomb Wing | 498th Bomb Group | 873rd Bomb Squadron - Saipan - WWII
This set of vintage photos was gathered from a photo album that belonged to one of the B-29 air crewmen who was there. This album was acquired from the airman's family and now resides in the possession of a military history collector.

I borrowed the album for the purpose of scanning/preserving these images to share with those interested in the history of the Pacific war and the drive to bring it to an end.

The majority of the images were not re-touched in order to preserve the originality of the images. I did correct exposure (for some images) in order to bring out the detail of the images.
