Camp Devens - A Bird's-Eye View - WW1 Cantonment 1918

Looking due west from Boulder Hill, one can see a greater part of the cantonment. Directly in front, behind the pines, are the barracks of the 330 1st Engineers. Beyond the pond, at the right, is one end of the huge Y. M. C. A. Auditorium.

Past the engineers' quarters, looking across the clearing to the buildings at the left of the prominent smoke-stacks, are the barracks of the Depot Brigade.

Below the sky-line, in the center of the picture we have the 303d and 304th Infantry, and looking over the Y. M. C. A. Auditorium at the right, one sees the barracks of the 301st and 302nd Infantry. The conspicuous chimneys mark the situation of the various heating-plants of the camp.
