Philippines Insurrection-Boxer Era Portrait: Army Officers in Japan


Recommended Posts

Thought I would add this one for the record. Two US Army officers in summer whites wearing the white 1895 service cap, one of who, ignored regulations by adding the US arms on the front of his cap. They are in the coastal port of Nagasaki. This city was a popular coaling stop for transports moving US soldiers and sailors to either China or the Philippine. Their choice of portrait motif, the popular photograph “riding in a rickshaw”. The result, the local photographer produced a well composed cabinet card sized image.
