John VanHammen Returning from WWI
VanHammen family - 1919
John VanHammen, on the right, looks out of the train window as do two other soldiers as the train arrives a the Grand Trunk station in Grand Rapids. John was returning from Russia where he was with the combat engineers of the Polar Bear Division. The windows are open and inside shades can be seen. The car appears to be wooden on the lower half, and just below the roof are small windows set in at angles. It is uncertain what the full name of the rail line is as only "& Western" is visible.
