Tall soldier vs. short soldier

The photographs of tall and small soldiers portrayed together are rather classic. Here’s one from my collection featuring two doughboys, note the way the overseas cap is worn by the short soldier to make him look taller!

  1. They are indeed a classic pair and I expect the tallest / shortest soldiers on all sides made similar photos. In the lower corner is that same paper marker that we’ve seen in the studio photos. Is it a date?

  2. Yes, our photographer used a system based on paper markers. #1 was in this case a calendar day, whereas #10 is probably the 10th picture taken that day. In this way he was able to retrieve quickly his pictures!
