Finchhaffen Camp, Darkrooms
"The 17th tactical Recon Sqdn Photo Section. The 4 connected wall tents. Paramidal tent to the left and behind housed photo Lab men. Trailer darkrooms - supplied by Gov't were not used too hot!" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Darkrooms and Mud. Hill's Photo Section was supposed to process film in the F-3 trailers (foreground), but found the trailers too small for anything but film developing. The pyramid tents (left) housed Photo Section men. To create adequate work space, the men connected three wall tents (center) for storage, finishing, drying, and annotating. For printing, they set up a tent within the higher tent (right). The pyramid tent (far right) housed Communication Section men." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
