604th Engineers WWI photographs, Undated

Identifier: 2010-089

Scope and Contents

166 silver print photographs, 3 1/16 x 5 3/16 plus margins, each with a printed caption.

A substantial group of World War I photographs portraying the men of the 604th Engineers, their activities and quarters, and a wide variety of scenes in the war zone. Included are views of such subjects as the regimental colors of the 604th, training at Camp Glenburnie in Maryland, troops on board the USS New Hampshire, troops marching toward the front, "gas mask training preparatory to going up in Argonne," railroad building in the Argonne, "A Morning's Catch" of German prisoners, "Frisking an Upturned tank," the regimental band, a German "machine gun nest," the cooks of Company A in the woods near Verdun, a ruinous cathedral with a caption reading "Cathedrals seemed to be the favorite hiding place for both sides and the favorite place for shelling from both sides," a dugout on Dead Man’s Hill, the hospital on Dead Man’s Hill, "Lt. Parks, the 'family' dentist on Voquoise Hill," "Thanksgiving Dinner on Hill 297," and so on. While apparently intended for publication (page numbers appear beside each caption), we can find no record of a publication relating to the 604th Engineers.
