Gordon W. Gahan, American (New York, New York 1945 - 1984 St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands)
Reservoir Shrinks as Drought Continues: New York: The sun is reflected in the slowly vanishing waters of the old Croton Reservoir here July 1st as widening mud flats give mute testimony to the seriousness of the drought which is currently affecting the north-east. The U.S. Weather Bureau's newest 30-day forecast gives rain watchers little cause for optimism as it predicts less than the normal amount of rain for the coming period. Aerial photograph was taken from the Goodyear blimp.
