Recently I found an album of my father’s military photos from the Second World War and, maybe, before that time… I don’t know who took the photos. I’m tempted to say my dad took some (because he did enjoy photography many years later), but I don’t remember him saying anything about having a camera back then. Most of these photos are not identified, which is rather unlike him. I recognize my dad in some of them, but in others I don’t who they are. Based on reading I did online, some of these photos were most likely taken at 141st Infantry Headquarters in San Antonio, in early 1940s. All the same, whoever the people are, and where/whenever these photos were taken, these are a record of a rapidly receding past— soon enough, this time will be as remote to us as the Civil War.
Maybe you know the locale or recognize a face?
