A Darkroom On Display

The exhibition recreates a darkroom from the period of Intrepid’s service. Among the objects and artifacts on display are examples of the camera types—both motion and still—used on board, as well as much of the developing equipment. It also showcases the remarkable results of the photographer’s mates’ work down to the photos they took, which documents everyday life on an aircraft carrier from the dangerous assignments to everyday routines.
