Attached please find two pictures of the John W. Thomason. One of the pictures is of the ship under the Golden Gate Bridge. Because I know my dad, Harvey H. Cody, Jr. (1926-1984), was the radio operator ("Sparky") on the shake down crew of the J.W. Thomason, I'm fairly confident that the attached is a picture of the ship's shake down crew. Harvey Cody is the third man from the left in the second row.

I thank my sister, Candy Cody, for maintaining the family archive from which these pictures were selected, and thank you for making these pictures available on the web.

Harvey H. Cody III
