FLYING SUPERWEAPON? (Apr, 1946)
Certainly looks like a space ship to me.
Would you say that this queer-looking contraption was a jet-propelled life raft, a plane fuselage flying without wings, or some other super-secret, odd invention just released for public view? Perhaps, if you turn the picture upside down and think of reflections on water as you reexamine it, you will be able to tell. It’s the conning tower of a German submarine sunk alongside its dock at Hamburg. Note the radar antenna. Lt. Arthur L. Schoeni, of the Navy Department, sent the photo in.

We’ve seen these pigeons before. This article also has examples of the pictures they took.
Carrier Pigeons Turn Cameramen
SOMETHING entirely new in aerial photography has been developed in Munich, Germany. In place of trained photographers carried aloft in airplanes or observation balloons, camera equipped pigeons are released to fly over the object to be photographed.
The pigeons do not fly at random. Months of training and selection are required before a few birds are chosen for camera work. Then their flights in each direction are timed so that the trainer knows exactly at what time the bird will be over a certain point. It is then a simple matter to time the camera to expose the film at the point desired.
PRINT ANY PHOTO ON PAPER, CLOTH, LEATHER OR WOOD (Jan, 1947)
Talk about lack of imagination. If you could print any photo on any object would you decide to make a headscarf with your husband’s face on it? Or maybe that’s not her husband… Maybe it’s the milk man. That would be much cooler.
