NOTA BENE: Although popular monthly magazine that was large like Life Magazine and Look Magazine, one must bear in mind some of the fictional stories make fun of minorities and ads like the one for Al Jolson who wore burnt-cork make-up. One of the first talking motion pictures was "The Jazz Singer" with an actor portraying Al Jolson, such a film would probably not be make today?

New York National Guard service uniforms were often cadet  grey in colour and during the U.S. Civil War their grey clad troops could be mistaken for southern rebels. The regular army adopted khaki service uniforms in 1898 also with epaulettes an cuffs in branch colour, khkai instead of cadet grey as seen here.
