  • Short Summary

    New army barracks being built, possibly at Aldershot.

  • Description

    Aldershot, Hampshire?

    Construction on military base. Several identical small wooden buildings are under construction. Horse pulling wagon carrying building supplies, pan to a long building with just the frame built, worker leaning over in foreground using pickaxe. Foundations of more new buildings at right.

    Army huts now built and painted a dark colour, soldiers and army officers mill about outside huts.

    American cataloguer's note: maybe these are extra barracks built at Aldershot during World War One to accommodate huge volunteer army.
