1920s artist "still life" of an unusual subject matter.
Depicts the equipment of a WW1 soldier of the 310th Machine Gun BN, 79th Infantry Division, AEF.
Equipment includes a bayonet, carry bag (with "AEF, 1918"), dog tag and the central helmet.
Other items include numerous VFW medals and ribbons along with reunion ribbons-- one to the 310th MG BN.
One of my favorite details is the USS Leviathan photo in the top left corner. The Leviathan was a troop ship that carried soldiers overseas and then brought them back after the occupation.
