Lockheed Aircraft 1940's

Lockheed During W.W.II (unbelievable 1940s pictures) This is pretty neat--special effects during the 1940's: During World War II the Army Corps of Engineers needed to hide the Lockheed Burbank Aircraft Plant to protect it from Japanese air attack. They covered it with camouflage netting to make it look like a rural subdivision from the air.

That's probably how some people got the idea to hide their marijuana plantations.

Look at those cars. Built like tanks. I love pics from that era. Terrible times, but those who survived them also have many fond memories. It brought out the worst and the best in people.

logjam, do they really do that? What about light? Doesn't weed prefer full sun? Here's an article I got when I punched "marijuana plantations hide" into Google: Taleban hiding from Canadians in Marijuana Plantations.

With all the fancy cameras out today and the zillions of colors they produce, I still love the old black & whites from yesteryears.
