P-1246     Extremely unique American Field Service Grouping. Robert Bowman drove an ambulance with SSU 1 for 9 months during 1916. He was from Lake Forest, Illinois and a graduate of Yale University. After his service ended, he returned to the United States and was involved in speaking about the American Field Service and his adventures in France.
    What we have here is the actual slide projector he used along with the case of original glass slides he used during his talk. He is shown leaning up against the back of his Ambulance, wearing his Croix de Guerre. The Indian Head of SSU1 is clearly visible. He had many of his personal images hand tinted and back filled the talk with others which he was able to purchase. The slides are sandwiched between paper thin glass, which in some cases have cracked. Glued to the inside of his slide box is his City of Chicago Permit to Exhibit Moving Pictures. The set has approximately 56 slides. The permit was to show a slide show of 50 images.
    I will state I believe this to be unique in American Volunteer movement materials. Keep in mind these slides show bright and colorful. They are photographed on an UNLIT background. Don't miss this one!!! $995ON HOLD
