The Army Hospital Album 1

One collection finished, so it's time to start another.  I have to confess, had this one been over $5 I would have passed.  It's not so much that the 160 plus photos in this album aren't interesting, in the whole.  It's that photos of men in uniform are so common that, well to put it mildly, the collection gets over run by military pictures.  Justified or not, we've been in a lot of wars in the last 100 years, and every time we go into battle, the military gets a little bit larger in the following peace.

Anyway,  this album has lots of photos of guys on base, some family and travel photos from California, and here and there throughout, soldiers in hospital.  Were these photos owned by a patient, nurse, or doctor?  Haven't a clue.  Like every other large collection I've posted, it will be spread out over more than a few months.  And the tag, army hospital collection.

  1. It reminds me of all the photos I have my father took in the 40s and early 50s when overseas. Lots of guys in uniforms with no names attached. I wish I did have names so I could post them and perhaps someday someone would find their relative in a shot they'd never seen before.
