About this Item

Title
Military camp at Tampa, taken from train
Other Title
Military camp, Tampa, panoramic view
Summary
"A wide plain, dotted with tents, gleaming white in the bright sunshine. Soldiers moving about everywhere, at all sorts of duties. In the background looms up a big cigar factory; giving the prosaic touch to the picture needful to bring out in sharp contrast the patriotism with which the scene inspires us. The camera was on a rapidly moving train, so the panoramic view is a wide one, and remarkably brilliant. 50 feet"--Edison films "war extra" catalog.
