Enlisted Men's Barracks with Black Beauty Stove

R0001
A view of Enlisted Men's Barracks, showing a pot belly coal stove, which the soldiers nicknamed "Black Beauty." A note on the back of the photo explained that the coal stove was the only source of heat in these barracks during the winter, so it was very likely part of the Medical Technicians School. Undated. (Signal Corps S-15)
