Beschreibung

32 leaves of black mounting paper, with 72 mounted b/w captioned [text in English & Spanish] photographs [71: 4-11/16" x 6-7/8"; 1: 9-3/4" x 7-3/4"]. 4 additional b/w "snapshots" laid-in, as are a number of Ecuadorian newspaper clippings & an Esso road map of Puerto Rico. The final leaf title "Autographs", with autographs of 6 military personnel. Album: 11" x 14" This photograph album presented as a souvenir from the U.S. Army's 504th Field Army Battlion in Puerto Rico to the visiting officers of the Ecuadorian Army, who were there in late June / early July of 1948. The photographs depict the field training received by those Ecuadorian officers, who were instructed in the use & operation of 105mm howitzer artillery. Also documented is the social interaction of the two groups, including ceremonies, luncheons, visits to historical sites, and even a tour of the Don Q Rum factory.While the exact impetus for this training visit is not detailed in the souvenir album, one can speculate that Ecuador's 1941 border dispute with Peru may have played some role in occassioning this training at the hands of the 504th. Front cover professionally reattached. Bit of flaking to front cover lettering. Very Good. Photographs clear & sharp. VG+ to Nr Fine. Red vinyl album, with title lettering in yellow script to front board. Red cord tie. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 42576
