- 1943 - 1944
Three-quarters portrait of a basketball player for the Albina Hellships, probably Claude “Skeets” O’Connell, sitting on a bench with his hands folded. He is facing right, smiling, and wearing an Albina uniform. The Hellships were sponsored by the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland. The name “O’Connell” is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The text “Albina shipbuilding / Basketball / 12/11/43, 1/7/44” is written on the negative. The photograph was probably taken in 1943 or 1944, but the exact date is unconfirmed.
