1958 AMERICAN RUSSIAN HISTORICAL COLD WAR BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPH CLASSIFIED CONSTRUCTION RCA
Wonderful historical item from the 1950's during the US Cold War with Russia! In 1958 RCA was involved with building a Ballistic Missile and Surface Radar Plant at Thule Air force base in Greenland. This black and white photograph backed on thick, hard cardboard comes from the estate of a gentleman who worked for RCA during this era. At the time, we believe this joint effort was classified. Looks like it is an alien scene from the "Day the Earth Stood still"!
Measures approx. 19" W x 16" H.
Boards are a bit bowed from age. Corners have creasing and bends.
