While Captain Hughes was in Roland Park, Baltimore, Maryland with Louise E Bohmer, he took her photo. Roland Park was one of the first planned "suburban" communities in North America. It was developed between 1890 and 1920 as an upper-class streetcar suburb. This photograph was taken January 17, 1920, about one month before Hughes left Camp Holabird, Maryland. James C. Hughes, as part of the 35th Division, left Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and traveled to Hoboken, New Jersey, where he boarded the troop ship "Ceramic" on May 18, 1918. Hughes arrived in Liverpool, England, on June 1, 1918 and then landed at Le Havre, France, on June 9, 1918. Hughes fought in the battles of St. Michael and the Meuse-Argonne. He was at Verdun on Armistice Day, November 11, 1918. He took no photos of the actual fighting. He did take many photographs after the war as part of the Army of Occupation until he left France on July 18, 1919. A full biography of James Clark Hughes is available at the link below to Kansapedia.
