Lockwood of New Orleans, Louisiana. The soldiers are wearing unusual matching military hats and naturally appear to be comrades in arms. As you can see the image is not in the best condition.This may be due to the lack of proper chemicals being available during the war years as no other sign of misuse or improper storage is evident.
