Photo #: NH 41871
Naval Training Station, San Francisco, California
Crowded sleeping area extemporized on the Drill Hall floor of the Main Barracks, with sneeze screens erected as a precaution against the spread of influenza. Photographed during World War I, probably in the latter part of 1918.
Signs on the wall at left forbid spitting on the floor. See Photo # NH 41871-A for a cropped version of this image, emphasizing the nearer of these signs.
Note that bunk headings are in the same direction, as opposed to the alternating headings seen in Photo # NH 2654, which was taken in the same location, but without sneeze screens in place.
