Through Your Eyes: Larry Swingholm

Larry Swingholm of California submitted a "now and then" photo of his father, James Swingholm, of Fort Myers Beach. The family visited the WW2 Aircraft Carrier USS Midway while James was visiting in California as an early Father's Day present.

Through Your Eyes: Larry Swingholm

Larry said his father was stationed on a similar ship, the USS Valley Forge, during WW2, so they decided to recreate a photo of him in front of a plane on the flight deck. The original was taken in 1946.

"He really seemed to enjoy seeing the places he worked and lived on a long time ago," Larry said.
