This picture seems to show uniforms being dried in the sun after washing. It was in  a series of pictures showing US Navy personnel which may or may not be connected to the series showing the USS Providence. All the pictures in this set had a very strong colour cast which I tried to remove as the slides were scanned – this one was quite successful, others were not so successful. The mount on this 127 format slide has the phrase ‘boot camp’ pencilled on it.
