News clippings

STC publication featuring Honeysuckle Creek

Standard Telephones and Cables ran this feature in their in-house magazine, probably late 1967 (judging from the photos – Photo 7 was taken September 1967, and Photos 5 and 8 feature display panels which were erected near the Gemini X capsule for the Opening Ceremony in March 1967.).

Photocopies of three of the pages were kept by Hamish Lindsay, but the first page is missing (and possibly others).
