What the hey. The war was over by 1919.

Technically, World War I did not end until the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in June of 1919. Since the fighting itself ended around the November 11, 1918 armistice, Second Lt. Paul Weir Cloud is probably taking stills of the war's aftermath and of U.S. troops in Germany (just guessing). All in all, he is still a "war photographer".

I want to know about the photographer taking the picture of the photographer.
