WWI 29th Division Photo Album
A large photograph album in plain black stiff card covers, approximately 7 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches by 2 inches thick, containing about 240 photographs of various sizes. The album was apparently compiled by a member of a medical unit within the 5th Maryland Regiment, which later served in the 29th Division in the AEF. There are quite a few photographs of the "friends and family" variety, particularly of pretty young women. There are also a number of photographs that show the unit on the Mexican Border; and in training before entry into World War I; and in France during the war. There are photos of the unit in Dallas and El Paso and of paddle wheel steamboats on the Mississippi River. There are photographs of soldiers who can be seen to be wearing medic armbands, or rank chevrons with the medical corps insignia or, in two photographs, the blue and gray 29th Division shoulder patch. There are photographs of French soldiers and of German prisoners of war. Many of the individuals are identified in captions by first names, with some officers being identified by their ranks and last names. The album is in overall very good condition.
