Photo #: 80-G-16311  Guadalcanal-Tulagi Landings, 7-9 August 1942
Title: Guadalcanal-Tulagi Landings, 7-9 August 1942
Description: Wrecked facilities and aircraft at the Japanese seaplane base on Tanambogo Island, east of Tulagi. Photo is dated 8 August 1942 and was probably taken shortly before U.S. Marines captured the island. This view looks about west, with a burned-out pier in the foreground, fuel drums piled to the left and the wreckage of a seaplane among the trees in the center. The buildings are probably left over from the island's days as a Royal Australian Air Force facility. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
Catalog #: 80-G-16311
