This aerial view of Stephenville was taken April 2nd, 1951. Looking north-west we see the diversion channel as it flowed southward into St. George's Bay, with an old kennel area on the western boundary. Fence to the rear marks the west· ern boundary of the Post. Stephenville lies beyond! the road shown, with the mainstreet as it was then passing through. At the right center is seen the beginning of Stephenville Crossing access road. Even then seeds of progress were popping up allover the place, and now many of the open spaces have been fi1led in, especially on the crowded main paved street, making it the rapidly expanding modern town that it is today. fast transformation of this place into a modern town is astounding. Stephenville, like most towns, is built around a main street that leads to number one gate on the base. It serves as an inlet and outlet for a heavy flow of traffic. On eirher side of the thoroughfare are situated newly constructed clothing stores. with lovely display windows: also shoe stores. theatres. groceterias, drug and hardware stores, modern restauran ts, and numerous other buildings of considerable significance. Late model cars are parked in rows, while their occupants are busy at their daily tasks. A regular sight around town is JUNE, 1056 new buildings in various stages of completion. These arouse interest in many people, and the remark is often heard: "I wonder what's that going to be when it's finished." The whole scene suggests great progress. Go to the chit-chat corner of town and you'd probably overhear such conversation as: "If a feller had this, or if a feller had something else . . he'd do okay." People who work a forty hour week are mostly employed daytime. At night they go down town, take in a movie. dance or have a glass of beer. On the weekend they shop. visit. or work around the house on Saturday:
