Goff's caption of this image, in full: "A street showing our tents. The 4th tent down on the left hand side was our tent. It gives you an idea of the snow and cold we had to contend with there."

Horace Goff mailed this photo from Ft. Myer, Virginia to his parents on February 24, 1918.

While it is probable that this photo was taken at Ft. Myer in Arlington, Virginia, information from Goff's letter suggests it may have been taken at a rifle range in Annapolis, Maryland.
