Description

"Tent interior of the Photo Section men (+Peters). Taken by Van Reimer" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Mildew and Letters. A.J. Countryman, Bernardo and Reimer write letters in their 20' x 20' Binmaley home. By this point, as Hill wrote to Martha, 'Every stick of bamboo in our tent has begun to mildew.' The floor was constructed of bamboo slats, while the inner ceiling was formed by a discarded silk parachute." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn) The person seated on the right in this image has been identified as Van Reimer, and also as Fred Hill. We believe that the person is Fred Hill, and that Van Reimer took the picture.
