Notes Outdoor view of members of Company C, 150th Machine Gun Battalion posed in and in front of a railroad passenger car. A large banner on the side of the car is decorated with the 42nd Rainbow Division insignia; three overseas stripes (one and a half years); "Co. C, 150th M.G.B.N." and the first two lines of the song "On Wisconsin." An inscription on back reads, "Taken in Ohio 1921". However, the unit ceased to exist after 1919 and this date is probably incorrect.
