Scope and Content

The Tandy M. Pryor photographs collection (dated circa 1917-1919; 0.5 cubic feet; 261 items) consists of 261 gelatin developing-out prints pasted to photographic album pages taken during and after World War I. The album documents the war from the French, British, German, and American points of view up to the signing of the armistice by the Germans and the return of American troops to their homes in 1919. This collection not only covers many aspects of actual military activity, such as the use of biological weapons and other new technologies, but also the people and places surrounding the conflict. The collection ranges from photographs of German soldiers to photographs of the gambling hall in Monte Carlo that soldiers frequented (items 188-192). Also included are photographs of artillery, aerial views (item 8), dugouts (item 21), a railroad collision (items 107-116), and even interurban streetcars (items 151-152).
