Bridge Under Covered Wagon


I have a pretty good eye for determining 20th Century decades, based on clothing and hairstyle. But this picture that I purchased had no details, and I can’t even venture a guess as to whether it’s the late 1800s or early 1900s. Anyone able to tell by the hats and uniforms where or when this might be?

  1. I would guess from the hats, horses and wagons it would be no earlier than 1914. I think that was the earliest use of the campaign hat. The pontoon type bridge was used for quite a few years going back to the Civil War; I think. My guess as calm as they all were it was maneuvers prior to WW I. Of course I am probably as wet as that river.
