WWI Portrait Photo – WWI Pilot Walter V. Monger of Benson, Vermont


World War One Vermonter photos are far and few between, so I always jump on the opportunity to add one to my growing collection.  Today’s portrait photo recently arrived in the mail from a fellow collector who discovered it at an estate sale on the West Coast.  This crisp and clear 8×10 portrait was sadly damaged during shipping but still retains it’s incredible details depicting the bullion wings and cap insignia.
