HOWARD ROZELLE took this aerial of the 32nd Street Mothball Fleet in 1950. It might have been August 20, 1950, but I suspect the "50-8-20" on the back of the photo meant the 20th photo of the 8th flight of 1950. You might enjoy comparing it with Rozelle Photo #4. I always remember hearing Mothball Fleet, but -- years later -- folks would call it Red Lead Row.
