Photographic Record of 70th Infantry from U.S. Camps to Europe, 1917-19 - Scarce; 70th WWI Regiment

A photographic record of an American soldier’s experience of service in the 70th Infantry Regiment. Photos depict the soldier’s travels to U.S. destinations, army camps to the 462nd Air Squadron in France (Special Orders Document Enclosed). 260, 2 ¼” x 3 ¼” photos begin with scenes shot from a boat entering NY harbor apparently returning from war in France. Photographic scenes progress in this general order: NY Harbor, Long Beach, NY; Kelly Field, TX; 48th Air Squadron, Mineola and Hempstead, L.I., NY; multiple locations in France, crashed planes, Morocco, Monte Carlo, London, Edinburgh, Camp Pontanezen, France and Weissenthurm, Germany. Photos range in size to include 1 ¾” x 2 ½”. 2 ¼” x 3 ¼”, and 2 ½” x 4 ¼”. Most photos are clear with about 10% unclear. Half the white captions are difficult to read. Some require a 8X lupe and others are missing or faded away. Photographic records of the WWI 70th Infantry are scarce. The album appears to begin with the soldier’s return in 1919 while his experience in war-time France is shown in the back. Ephemera includes orders to report to Air Squadron in France dated April 28, 1918, an arm patch and a flyer for a musical produced by members of the 462nd Aero Squadron. See next to last photo.
