Someone on Reddit has just posted these images. He says he got them from his grandfather.

They include some remarkable pictures of Alan Shepard and the recovery of Freedom 7 that I've not seen before.

I've seen many of those images before but not all. What a nice collection. Too bad the color photos didn't hold up so well.

A close friend of mine was on the USS Champ that day and gave me a photo album with many similar images. I think it's neat that they put the capsule on the old military stripped bed mattresses.
