Commander Barrett, John's mother, and John, 1943 #20 p 3
A delightful trio of shots showing John and his parents, taken in Hawaii around 1943.Christmas card Sophie's picture was earliest, in front of 2415 Ala Wai Boulevard, with iron porch railing showing probably September 1941. John's picture was about October, l942, and Jack liked a light effect in which John's permanent teeth, forming under the gums, cause reflection of light (Jack Barrett photos).The picture of Jack Barrett was taken by a U.S. Navy photographer in Jack's personal inner office in the Admionistration Building Pearl Harbor, first floor, on the south front corner of the building. The set of three was prepared for l943 Christmas cards. 12 CEIBA PENTANDRA 15 Cameraria retusa 16-17 Gliricidia sepium 18 Spndias mombi 21 Calycophyllum candidissimum26 Coccothrinax Victorini, litoralis, muricata, fragrans, 31 saxicola, alexandri, 62 gundlachii 27-39 Cecropia peltata 28,44 Clusia rosea 30 Comocladia dentata Anacardiaceae 32 Heliotropium sphaerococcum Croton myricifolius, Bouteloua juncea 33-4-5-6-7 Zamia angustifolia 113-4 pygmaea 40 Sterculia apetala 42 Cyathea 43 Rhytidophyllum tomentosum Gesneriaceae 45 Euterpe globosa 46 Eugenia jambos "Pomarrosa" 47 Hohenbergia penduliflora 47=8 Phaius grandifolius terrestrial orchid 49 Randia spinifex Rubiac 50-1-2 Pereskia cubensis arborescent cactus +98-99 grandifolia 53 Lemaireocactus hystrix 54 Cephalocereus brooksianus cac + Gundlachia lindeniana aster 55Dendrocereus nudiflorus - giant cactus 56-7 Opuntia macrantha 58 Citharexylum tristachya 63 Alvadaroa arborescens Simaroubac oriente 64 -109 Dichrostachys natans mimosa African 65 Swietenia mahogani "Acajou" 66-7 Belaira mucronate 67 Dendropht [h?] ora dominguensis Loranthac + Tillandsia fasciculata 69 Omphalea trichotoma dimorphisme foliare 70 -1-2-3-4-5 Colpothrinax wrightii 76-7-8 -113-5 Acoeloraphe wrightii 80-1 Microcycas calocoma Jan 19 Consolacion del Sur 87 Gynerium sagittatum grande gramine'e 90-1 Pinus tropicalis Pinar del Rio + L'I^le des Pins 92-120 Quercus virginiana 94 Hibiscus costatus Organos 95 Pavonia malacophylla 96 Rondeletia correifolia Rubiac Pinar del Rio 100 GAUSSIA princeps endemique OrgaNOS 101-1 SPathelia brittonii Rutac 102 Bombyx emarginatum 103 Ekmanianthe actinophylla Bignoniac Organos 104=5 Ficus religiosa, benjamina + 122 subscabrida 106 Plumeria rubra tricolor Apocynac 107 Hura crepitans sabliers Ouratea agrophylla Maytenus buxifolia Cordia globosa Triopteris jamaicensis Malpighiac Casearia aculeata Hippocratea volubilis "Bejucos" Laguncularia racemosa;PPale/tuviers Cestrum diurnum,Pluchea odorata 108 Sabal florida110 Ochlospermum vitifolium, 111 Anacardium occidentale Cachous 115 Lygodium cubense Fouge're 116-7 Tabebuia lepidophylla "Rompe roma" Bignoniac 118-9 Pachyanthus0 poiretti Melastomatac 121 Yucca aloifolia 122 Selenicereus 124 Hypericum stypheloides w. 125-6 Kalmiella ericoides Pinar del Rio 128 Befaria cubensis e/ricace/ arbuste pinar del Rio 129 Vaccinium ramonii 130 Calocarpum sapoti "Sapotillier" "Mamey colorado" 131 Philodendron wrightii Arac 132 Piper ossanum los Organos 134 Xylopia grandiflora Anonac 135 Urera baccifera 136 Megalopanax rex 137 Agave legrelliana Matanzas bay 1`41 Coccothrinax miraguama v. roseocarpa San Miguel de los Banos 144 litoral 143 Agave sisalana Cardenas 145 Dendrocereus nudiflorus a' Varadero 3 coasts 146 Erythroxylon rotundifolium calciare madreporique de Varadero 148 Cephalocereus robinii.
