COOPER'S MERCURY PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION. COOPER'S MERCURY PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION.
COOPER'S MERCURY PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION.
Gordon Cooper's group of 25 black and white photographs from his Mercury days, including astronaut training, spacecraft development, and mission related photographs from Mercury Atlas 9. 10 x 8 inches with most having printed captions on verso.

With GORDON COOPER'S signed provenance note, reading in part: "The enclosed 25 Mercury photographs really provide a visual representation of the amazing pace of events that occurred during the Mercury Program which enabled Gemini and Apollo to succeed. It really was the golden age of space exploration and it was over in just a few short years. Many of us in the astronaut corps thought that the next 30 years after the moon landings would result in even greater achievements, but sadly that has yet to happen.
Looking through this set of Mercury photographs brings back my memories of those very challenging and busy days. It was a time that I will always remember."
