Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $250.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Unusual collection of over 70 vintage original NASA photographs documenting pre- and post-mission events during the Mercury Program, all glossy finished, 8 x 10 and 10 x 8, with the majority bearing NASA caption text on reverse; some photos feature caption sheets stapled to front of image. This photographic collection is quite diverse, with the following a mere sample of the included images: famed flight director Christopher Kraft during a press conference; spacecraft hardware readied for lift; an ABMA Redstone Missile; the MR-2 in launch structure and MR-4 capsule during transportation; numerous shots of the escape pylon tower; various NASA personnel and military figures; and several photos of pre-launch news conferences and ceremonies. In overall very good to fine condition, with some curling and edgewear. From the M. Edward Thomas Collection.
