    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    Not that’s a cool setup!
    I wouldn’t mind seeing that hanging from my wall. Love the Lucky Strikes at top right.

    The 'green' in "Lucky Strike green goes to war" was the green dye used in the green prewar package... the war time and later packages were white, both had the red 'ball'... Boy! you youngsters! L.S.M.F.T. to some ment 'loose suspenders mean falling trousers'...

    Frequently in this era, they were using medium or large format cameras which are easily capable to take pictures with enough detail and clarity to compete or outcompete with the VAST majority of digital cameras even today due to the size of the film vs the size of photo sensors today.
