Hollaway was a professional photographer. His son, our great Uncle Harry Holloway
(1890-1952), at least trained to do aerial reconnaissance in WW1, although it
is unclear if he actually made it to
He had no children but was
quite fond of our father (his nephew), Jim N. Griffin. In 1953 his widow gave
our father a photo album with almost 300 photographs. Many of these are recon
photos of battlefields. A few of the photos appear to be training photos,
I recently found a number of informal photos of the training, and these are now included as pages from a photo album.
The original photos are well preserved. Most are prints made from glass plates. I scanned them at 600 dpi, for the black and white resolution supported this. I also did not crop the images, but left all the writing and edges.
You may feel free to use these for educational purposes. However, if you wish to publish these you must obtain our permission (email@example.com).
We have not identified these photos, but we would appreciate any help in doing so. They are in the order that they occurred in the photo album. There are also some loose photos from the album which are in no particular order. We did not do tight cropping, for there is some information on the edge of photos, and we were also not willing to disassemble the album to scan it.
