Summary: Photo taken around 1961 - 1964 of a group of men and two women gathered around a banner which reads "Welcome to the Cradle of Naval Aviation" taken at NAS Pensacola. A Convair R4Y sits in the left of the photo while a Navy band plays in the background on the right. Men work to remove luggage from the plane and were seemingly caught by surprise in the photo. Behind the middle of the banner is Bishop Joseph Aloysius Durick, to his left is Rear Admiral Daniel F. Smith. The back of the photo holds a stamp of credit to the U.S. Navy, descriptive information of the two men, and an archival summary. The summary credits the photo to around 1961 while in pencil is a date of 1964.
