Title

Small color Kodak studio portrait print of sailor Allan Srarcy, with affectionate inscription to Gordon, 1973.

Date

1973? (The photograph has an inscription on the back with the year in quotation marks.)

Description

This tiny color print is a studio portrait of a smiling very young-looking white man in a Navy uniform. On the back is a handwritten inscription "To Gordon, with great love, Allan, '1973.'" This photo was stored along with a handwritten note on scrap paper (a blank "received of petty cash" form) that reads "Allan Srarcy, 060 465 156, US PRATT, DECK DIVISION, APO NY, NY, 09501." ("APO" stands for "Army Post Office" - this address may have been given by Allan to Gordon as a way to stay in touch while Allan was overseas. However typically "FPO" would be used for someone in the Navy - "Fleet Post Office.")

Physical Dimensions

2.5" x 1.75"
