Description

Rectangular photograph on developing out paper glued to cardboard. Images shows Company B of the 6th Infantry milling about outside their new quarters. Heavily trimmed trees are visible at far left, while a large, two-story brick building with a prominent first floor porch is visible behind the men. The caption written in pencil on the back reads, "Members of Co. B. 6th Infty. taken while the company were policing around their new quarters --- at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. You will notice me smoking a cigarette."

One of three artillery barracks built between 1901 and 1903, the building in this image appears to be what is known today as Davis Hall (1901).
