Wounded soldiers embarking in row boats

SUMMARY From the Biograph picture catalogue: 27 feet. This picture was taken after the battle of Las Guaymas, and shows a large number of wounded soldiers embarking in a rowboat from an extemporized dock, on their way to the hospital ship "Olivette." A high sea was rolling in at the time, which made embarkation exceedingly difficult, and the pitiful condition of the wounded soldiers under such conditions can readily be imagined. This picture is remarkably fine photographically, and has made a marked sensation wherever it has been shown. NOTES Copyright: American Mutoscope & Biograph Co.; 24Apr1903; H30727.
