By 

Abstract

Photograph of the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Washington, D.C., [s.d.]. A soldier in tall boots, a pressed jacket and pants which fit loosely around his thighs is depicted walking around the large tomb at center. His hat sits low over his eyes as he cradles the butt of his bayonet leaving the sharp edge extended behind his right shoulder. The darkly-colored tomb stands several feet tall with gravel on the ground surrounding it. The gravel yard is fenced in by a short, lightly-colored fence which appears to consists of many stone pillars. Dry, skeletal trees blanket the yard beyond the fence while several large buildings as well as the Washington Monument stand prominent in the distance
