DescriptionApollo 12 (CM108): Five Unique NASA Internal Post-Flight CM Photos. We've never handled anything like this before. They came from Donald Hamilton, a NASA engineer heavily involved with processing the Apollo capsules upon their return to Houston. All are vintage 10" x 8" chromogenic prints with blue image numbers on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermarks on the verso. As follows.
706-245-1392-06: Image of a CM panel with the inscription on the side: "Yankee Clipper Sailed With Intrepid/ to The Ocean Of Storms, Moon/ November 14, 1969/ Charles Conrad Jr Richard F. Gordon Jr Alan L Bean".
706-245-1397-03: Spacecraft control panel showing the FDAI ("8 Ball") with the same text as above written around its face panel.
706-245-1397-04: An internal wall of the spacecraft with a plaque that reads: "This flight is brought to you courtesy of the US Air Force". The flight crew was all Navy but the backup crew was all Air Force. This was likely one of the stunts pulled by the backups.
706-245-1397-05: Another internal section with a plaque that reads: "Beat Navy". Without a doubt, another backup crew stunt.
706-245-1399-04: A humorous plaque with a diagram of a syringe (?) and the text: "Pete, I'll Be Waiting For You At The End Of The Trip".
All excellent. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
