Hello

What are your thoughts on this photo.

I tried my best to get clear pictures.

 

  • You can see some of the headgear where wreaths are present.
  • It looks like on of the soldiers is holding a flag?
  • One looks to be cleaning out a wash tub?

 

Thank you for your time and help

Tony

Just based on the style of photographic mount and process, this dates to 1880s.  Uniform-wise, I would say it falls in that zone, as well. 

 

FWIW,

Tony, with benches at the tables, I'm wondering if this was taken outside a mess tent?
