1950's Framed Color Photo Regulus Missile Launch, From Estate of USAF General Charles Terhune

This old photograph actually came from the estate of General Charles Terhune, though there may be nothing on the back of the photo to indicate this. If there is, the value of this would increase dramatically, as General Terhune was involved and in charge of the early rocket programs in the military, as well as space programs. He was one of the first 5 officers to be assigned to the Air Force Ballistic Missile Program. He must have had family that moved from California to Oregon, as my dad went to an estate sale about 15 years ago and purchased several old pieces that had General Terhune's name on it. It was framed in Long Beach with an old address, stamped on the back.

The missile is a Regulus, as best as I can tell, or some earlier version. There is mild wear on the photo, the bottom shows perhaps the indentation of a brad that holds it in from the back. My dad gave this to me several years ago and it just doesn't match my decor! Anyway, it's looking for a new home.
