Photos: Air Raid Warden

There are some photos captured from Innanen family 8mm home movies, which had subsequently been transferred to video tape. The quality and color (if present) are sometimes not the best, but they convey the spirit of the times in Hawaii for my parents.

These photos are relevant to the following stories:

Here's my mother, Margaret Innanen, looking into the air raid
shelter on the street where she was air raid warden.

Here's the air raid warden herself in full gear - gas mask, helmet,
and Hawaiian print sun dress.

...and my father, Bill Innanen, in the same gear
(substituting shorts and a Hawaiian print shirt for the dress).

Blackout rules allowed only a small aperture on the headlight covers for cars.
