Thanks everyone for their comments, photos and anecdotes.

Peter, you were certainly lucky to have such an extended one-on-one with
Alan Shepard! Martin, love the picture of the Redstone launch console.

Some additional pictures taken at JSC, Houston attached.

system payload, with Redstone/Mercury in background.
Five unmanned Little Joe II launches took place to test and verify the
Launch Escape System and the Command Module parachutes.
