Thomas & Mole

Image by: Englishman Arthur S. Mole and his American colleague John D. Thomas.

In 1918, Arthur S. Mole photographed soldiers returning from the war. The soldiers were made to stand in formation of American icons. As highlighted by Arthur's great nephew Joseph Mole, "In the picture of the Statue of Liberty there are 18,000 men: 12,000 of them in the torch alone, but just 17 at the base. The men at the top of the picture are actually half a mile away from the men at the bottom"
