World War 1, The Meuse-Argonne Front
Again, I think the originals are rotogravures, though I'm not sure. The first two images include a standard photographic print I made from a copy negative. They are captioned, "Two miles an hour was the rate at which traffic moved through Esnes near the Meuse-Argonne front. The scene is typical of the congestion of vehicles back of the line." The guys getting inspected, "Shirt reading." The other photo of vehicles is captioned, "A traffic jam at Esnes." The guys getting water, "A drinking reservoir for American troops moving toward the front." The sleeping soldier, "A catnap in a gun emplacement."
