View of Hangars on Manhasset Isle, 1938

fom195View of Manhasset Bay, in front of Pan American hangar on Manhasset Isle.  Notice the flying boat that just landed!

The hangar floors were absolutely without a grease spot on them anywhere, the docks and floats were freshly painted, and a big signal mast with the national colors flying.  It was quite a handsome base altogether.
