I acquired this yard long at an Antique Store.  There were no visible markings on the photo to identify the unit or location.  I believe the photo was taken during the winter, based on the dress of the Marines.  "No. 26" was written on the top of the front of the photo and it was also written on the back of the photo.  There were several names written on the back.  I will attempt to research the names when time permits.  Can anyone identify the buildings in the background?  Thanks.

 

Photo with original frame.

I believe this photo was taken at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Here is a picture of the Marine Barracks at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.

Agree with Hink, Leauge Island, Philadelphia. I am thinking the Causal Company, March 1919.

Thanks for your help.  I plan on having the photo reframed at a later date.
