I'm confused about the stereo photos. Realist wasn't around in 1918 so they weren't shot with that camera. If those are negatives rather than prints on the table in front of him, then they were shot on 120 film (I'm imagining).
...A 5x7 photo of a real trench is pretty exciting too, but I'm sure 5x7 was comon enough then. I wonder if the photographer was acting in some official capacity. It couldn't have been convent to carry a 5x7 around under those circumstances...
The "5x7" refers to a PRINT size, not a negative. The camera was surely much smaller than a 5x7 large format camera.
