Here's all the info we know. The photo is from the Avery-Mead Family collection, WH564. The photo appears to be cut out of a magazine or book; it's not printed on photo paper, but on some kind of publication paper. [It's not a half-tone.] The collection includes materials from the Spanish-American war, and has photos from the Philippines. So our best guess for the location of the photo is the Philippines. Most of the time we have full records and information about photographs and other materials we post, however, in this case, we did not. I did not want to discount the photo and not post it, because it was a good representation of a creepy, scary photo, just in time for Halloween.
