The Autumn 2021 issue of Military Images arrived today. In this issue there was the article The Tiger Tree Backdrop of Kalamazoo, Michigan, by Adam Ochs Fleiccher. This is an interesting article that can help a researcher identify photographs taken in Kalamazoo, Michigan and what regiments were raised in Kalamazoo. Military Images has had many articles about photographic backdrops and where the photographer was located. Still one needs to research multiply issues of Military Images to identify where an image was taken. I would think a book about photographic backdrops would be very helpful.
