A LOOK Back: WWII Photo Before War Damage
During World War II, a 45th Division soldier took a series of “tourist” photographs while stationed in Italy. These photos recently caught the attention of Italian historians because they show the ancient Greek ruins of Paestum, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before suffering bomb damage. A copy of this photograph is currently on display in the Nations at War: Field Sketches of a Pawnee Warrior exhibit in Oklahoma City and in Italy.
Photo provided by Edmond History Museum, Bob Frazier Collection. Soldier’s identity currently being researched. Please contact the museum if you recognize this man or have similar WWII images.
