Uncle Eugene

Circa 1917/1918

Uncle Eugene served in the US Army during the First World War. He was a cook along with being a doughboy in the Infantry. I don't remember Uncle Eugene telling us kids about the great War, "The War to end Wars". I do remember playing with his Gas Mask in the celler.

A very interesting side note on this photoo relates to the Theme photo of the Fenaroli's. That's the photo of all the Fenaroli's shown in the opening frame. When that photo was taken, Uncle Eugene was in France. The Photographer apparently took this photo and cut in the missing son. Wasn't that clever and technaically challenging, and he did it without a computer. Will wonders never cease.
