Thank you for making the effort to post these images.  I have always found the twenty year era from

the Spanish-American War (1898) through the Great War (1918) to be a fascinating period of rapid

technological innovation.

 

Observation balloons to bombers.  Artillery pulled by horses to dedicated prime movers.

Transport wagons (as photographed) to REO trucks.   This was the era in which war was

truly becoming mechanized.

 

 

I have only one minor critique, too much digital compression has been applied to those

images resulting in pixelation artifacts, and loss of detail.   The forum allows 250kb per image.

 

 

Are those photographs searchable on line?  If so, would you be so kind as to post a link.

The pictures were so faded that it took  quite a bit of photoshopping to even bring out the details. Probably if I hadn't enlarged them quite so much, they may have looked better.Try this link to the Univ of Florida Library: http://www.library.u.../warphotos.html

This is whatr the pics look like directly downloaded.mw6lg.jpg
