Yes.....sadly it was packed in just a piece of cardboard and showed up practically folded in half. The seller was outstanding and made right by it though!!!

Another colorized portrait. No writing on it either. It does have a embossed stamp in the lower right hand corner of the photo....which appears to me to be Chinese?

Yes indeed.....living in Albuquerque for some reason does not produce much collectibles here....pretty dang dry as militaria goes.....it's great for vintage bikes and cars (which I collect too!) since it is so dry!

A RPPC.....I find it interesting these gentlemen are still wearing sun helmets? I suppose the pic could have been taken earlier than the date on the back?

Some super images there. Number 4 is my favorite (so far). Thanks for sharing these.

Ditto...number 4 takes the cake. Also love the one with the boards...

 

Those sun helmets are likely acquired sun helmets, not the summer dress helmets, shapes are off and no insignias it looks like...likely first decade of the 20th century
