This postcard of the "Kitchen in U. S. Army Barracks" was published by Curt Teich. It is labeled U. S. Army Cantonment Series No. 68. This seems to be a large general series of postcards illustrating Army life in the World War I era.The postcard does not identify a specific camp or location.
This particular card was mailed from Des Moines, Iowa on November 3, 1918 with a 2¢ stamp. The stamp indicates that the sender apparently was not a soldier who could have mailed the card "free" via Ssoldiers Mail. The message is typical of the type used to fill up space on a postcard without really saying anything:
Dear Raymond: I rec'd your letter and was glad to hear from you. I am well and glad to hear you are the same. I haven't much news to write. Tell all the folks hello for me. I must close as ever your friend. Charlie
