Above is the Radar Site on the East end of the Dauphin Island taken from a 1962 postcard which is shown in full size. Should anyone have a better copy of this card - please contact me to arrange getting a new scan of it for inclusion here.
The enlarged area shown below is of the eastern end of Dauphin Island. You can see both Fort Gaines (Established in 1821) at the tip on the water line and adjacent to it, the 693rd Radar Squadron as it appeared in 1962.
These two pictures are from a 6 X 9 inch postcard published in 1962. The distributor was Dexter, Inc., and the card or print number is 30361-B ~ PH68535. Published by Thigpen Photocolor, Inc., 163 State Street, Mobile, Alabama.
The caption on the back of the post card reads:
693rd Database Roster Form.
