More old album photos - National Cemetery

This is a photograph found in the same family album the prior post. Condsider the humor that pervades the shots in this family album. I think the irony of the beautiful girl against the background of graves stretching off to the horizon was not lost on the photographer or subject. Neither could have quessed that some unforseen event in unloading or developing the film would cause such a perfect fade-to-black on the right side of the image.
It was 1920. The parade of non-descript graves were probably from World War One. I can't imagine how much it has expanded as the years have passed.
