Looking Towards King St. East, 194-?

Geoffrey Baker was an airplane mechanic with the Royal Air Force who was stationed at Mount Hope Airport during World War II. This collection is a good overview of the activities of Baker during the war including shots of the airport as well as the Hamilton area. He took many pictures of Mount Hope, Hamilton, local rail traffic (Baker was an avid train spotter) and other locations he visited.

His collection consists of nearly 300 photographs, as well as a few booklets from Mount Hope and Greenfield Pioneer Village.
