This is a nice story, my wife's relative was a farmer after WW1. This is a postcard he sent to his mother from Paris Island, his portrait in the farm. His brother in this print with his boy, and the chicken wood for boxes

    I like the "Human" USMC emblem.

    These type of patriotic photographs were created with numerous themes-- Division Patches, Woodrow Wilson, Liberty Bell, etc...

    Large prints of those made by Mole and Thomas are highly prized and collected.

    Scott were these shot from planes? And i thought color file was not around 1918.it looks like a B/W print with blue paint.

    No-- they would build a tower and shoot from it.

    Your image is lithographic print (made from and original photograph) and it has been tinted.
