Scope and Content
Photograph of the Officers Mess building at the Yarmouth Centre Airport, New Sarum, which was sold by the War Assests Corporation to St. Thomas to be used as a convalescent hospital. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: 'Airport Building to Become St. Thomas Convalescent Hospital: When civic and hospital officials here began dickering for a building at the Yarmouth Centre Airport which might be purchased from War Assets Corporation and converted into a convalescent hospital, they favored a two-story H-shaped building completed just as the war came to an end in the summer fo 1945. War Assts Corp. said they could have it. But officials of the hospitals devision of the Ontario Department of Health preferred a one-storey building three of four years older which has served as the student and staff officers' quarters. Fortunately, War Assets Corp. said they would sell it in place of the other two-story building, and the deal is now being put through. The Department of Health, in addition to preferring the onestory building, which is pictured above showing the south front facing on the airport, recommended that the building should be purchased together with its present site, which is only about three and a half miles east of the city. Negotiations toward this end are also under way. Mayor Bruce Caldwell, who is pressing the deal to early completion, hopes to see the building converted inside three months and to have it in use by 25 to 30 convalescent and chronic cases from the Memorial Hospital, whose removal from there would materially relieve the congestion which has existed there for many months."

Scope and Content
Photographs of an overturned plane at the St. Thomas Airport. The exterior of the airport is also shown. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "Windstorm Wrecks St. Thomas Plane on the Ground." 1_1502: "The tail end of the tornado that swept the United States and Windsor last Friday and then lost its stregnth over Southwestern Ontario, had sufficient kick left when it hit the Municipal Airport at Yarmouth Centre to make a wreck of a Cornell plane belonging to Pettus and Maynes, St. Thomas business men, that was moored off a runway. A heavy gust of wind, Friday night, broke the moorings on the side of the plane and another gust caused the plane to turn turtle, damaging the fuselage. Fortunately the engine and wings were not damaged. The plane will be used to supply spare parts in the reconditioning of other planes. John Pettus, one of the owners of the plane, is shown on top of the overturned machine, inspecting the damage."
