WWI Enlisted Man and two NCOs, studio photo dated 1917.
WWI Enlisted Man and two NCOs, studio photo dated 1917. Interesting character study.
Measures 3 ½ " x 5 ½ ". A formal photo despite the carefully informal seating arrangement. Sharp image provides excellent detail of the uniforms. The verso has a hand-written lettering by one of those photographed and addressed probably to his wife or beloved, wishing her a Happy Easter, "Christ is Resurrected! My Dear! Many kisses. Yours [signature] 2 April, 1917". The date is followed by the name of the town the photo was taken in but it is illegible (and could also be abbreviated, too)
Very good condition, slightly chipped at bottom right and small dots impressed into the paper near the center, not detracting.
