The first Saturday of every month, the Olde Town Business Association hosts a flea market in one of the city's many parking garages.  I ventured out in search of models, but didn't see a single one.  In all honesty, there wasn't a whole lot there of any interest to me, but I didn't want to leave empty-handed.  One of the vendors had a huge stock of vintage postcards.  A lot of these were ridiculously expensive, especially to someone without a lot of pocket money, but I did find the following and pick them up for $4 (2 each).

This first is a view of Ft. Eustis (in Hampton, VA) in June of 1941.  Note the B-18 flying over the base.

This next was dated September 1942, and depicts a Sikorsky S-42 in Pan Am colors.
