Scope and Content

Six black and white photographs mounted on five lined 5x8 in. cards with extensive typescript captions. The first five photographs were taken in Alimenues, Philippines, where the soldier was stationed as a scout in 1901. Images include scouts and horses, stables, horse-drawn carts, men shoeing a mule, Filipino men cutting timber “for the U.S. Government when they built a Military road to the Ry,” and a woman “thrashing” rice with an explanation of the process. The last photo, dated 1916, shows the soldier and a colleague after arriving by train in Bakersfield, California. The captions explain the context of each image and identify most soldiers pictured. The photos range in size from 3x3 to 4x6 in. (From dealer's description).
