[Photo Album]: California, and Training in Tacoma, Washington for WWI
California, Tacoma, Washington, etc. 1916-1919. Near Fine. Hardcover. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 11" x 7.5". Black cloth over flexible boards, with a cut out photo of an unknown young woman. Cloth is a bit faded, overall very good or better, the images are near fine and mostly of better quality than usual. Contains approximately 360 gelatin silver photographs. Various sizes from 1.5" x 2.5" to 5.5" x 5.35". Mostly captioned in white album ink.

The base, located in Tacoma, Washington, continues as a U.S. Army installation today. Among the photos is a series of four showing a man in uniform performing different attack procedures with a bayonet. A caption written in white album ink says "Bayonet Drill as Practiced by the U.S. Army. Taken at Camp Lewis by Officers for Review of the 11th division." Another page in the album contains a photograph of a soldier with a caption "the bravest and best pal I ever had." The name S.A. Knudsen is written next to it. Another series of eight photos on two pages is captioned "Brother at Camp Lewis. The World War of 1916-1918." He is shown in three different positions, entitled "attention, advance and surrender." Another page of five photographs contains a clipped out logo for the Utah 1st Battalion, 145th Field Artillery. Additionally … [Click Below for Full Description]
