A pamphlet containing Camp Funston photographs. Included is a brief list of all the amenities Camp Funston has, including a Zone of Camp Activities. This Zone was "financed and built by private capital without cost to the Government". It contains an arcade, stores, theatres, pool halls, picture shows, barber shops, bowling alleys, and more. Camp Funston also has it's own fire department, police force, and hospitals, and claims "at no time in the world's history has the soldier been so well cared for as he is today in Cantonments and Army Posts of the United States." It was on the Fort Riley military reservation.
