A soldier's Camera
Roger Schultz put me onto this guy's website. He buys old cameras, and develops any film he finds inside. One of the many sets of fascinating photos on his website, is this set by an American soldier in wartime and post-wartime Italy.
The young MP holding the newspaper might be the unknown owner of the camera, he appears in several of the photos. Who was he? From the photos it appears he sailed on the U.S.R.S. Algonquin home from Italy and landing in New York.
