In Better Days: Photo taken in November 1983 showing a late afternoon view of Complex 19 at Cape Canaveral. The blockhouse and erector made famous in the Gemini Program are clearly visible in this photo. Anyone who has visited the pad in recent years will see that time has not been kind to the site. Complex 19 has been primarily reduced to rust. Nothing lasts forever when competing with the seaside elements.
