|There are three pictures showing a small view of all of the photographs in this World War II Photo Album.|
All of the (36) Photographs included measure 5" x 7". The photos are in the book with black paper corners. There are some pages that once had photos, but are now gone. Some of the photos have captions and others do not (see below). This is a great lot of World War II photos.
There are many United States Navy Sailors pictured as well as locations in Europe. Some of the Sailors are named. There are a lot of photos and below I will type the captions and whatever other information that I can. The photographs pictured are not in ant particular order. They were assembled by horizontal and vertical format. Also, the light flashes are from taking pictures of the photos and are not on the photos themselves.
