This historic WW 1 picture had hung at my grandfathers home all the time I was growing up. Somehow the frame was lost and I have had the rolled up picture boxed up way too long. A simple project, but one I needed to complete for a tribute to all the men who have served for our freedoms on this Veterans Day 2013. Panoramic photography was in it’s infancy when this picture was shot in 1917 of the 302nd Ammunition Train as they left Camp Upton, Long Island, NY for France. The original frame was painted black, but I decided to use some Black Walnut cut from my properties to enclose this historic picture for the next 100+ years. My grandfather use to laugh when he told about one of the men who ran from one side, behind the camera and was photographed on the other side also. To all veterans, Happy Veterans Day. Doug
