Old Jeep on the Palmyra Atoll

• CATEGORIES: Features, Library Collections, Old Images

These images were located at the Hawaii State Archives, Digital Collections. The front bumper on this jeep was pretty beat up! All photos are from the Palmyra Atoll and include Jean Hobbs and Leslie Fullard. The site was very slow when I was exploring it, so searching is a little tedious.

    That sign makes me wonder if’n that’s a Chinese laundry, or a place to recover after a long night @ the local watering hole.

    Palmyra Atoll was the site of murder and mayhem in August 1974. The book ‘And the Sea Will Tell’ by Vincent Bugliosi, tells the true story. A good read. No mention of the jeep tho
