1937 Niagara Falls
This must be the American Falls. I guess they allowed people to go down among the rocks then. Don't think you can do that now.

Frank, Gen, Chief
Notice the clothes in pics 013-016: they're the same as the clothes they were wearing at Niagara Falls. So I assume this is either going to or coming from the Falls.

Jan, 1944
Island of Capri, Italy

Pics 097-100 were on a single filmstrip. This is image 1.
Read Joe's 01/17/1944 letter to Frank; this may be the rest camp he mentions.

The negatives for pics 101-103 were so large that I could not scan the entire picture (using the negative scanner). So the tops of these pictures are cropped off.

Pics 108-113 were VERY dark. I was surprised that I was able to get any detail out of them. They appear (mostly) to be Girl Scout related.
