TOM MYERS SCRAPBOOK

I have been enjoying the Lago site for some time now. Here are some random photos of  Aruba scenes; the gold smelter, T docks, aerial shots of the golf course, refinery, north coast, the hospital(?) and a couple of the aquariums my family caught fish for. I think all these photos were taken in the early sixties. I just got back from visiting my mother and have a bunch of unsorted pictures that I will be sending you copies of in small batches.

My family; William L. Myers, Lou Myers,  Bill Jr. and me moved to Aruba from Oklahoma in 1954. I canít remember the first house we lived in; it was right next to the school  then 233, 336 and then 1507 until we left in 1966.  Tom Myers, December 2008. Additional photos captions were added February 2009
