Vladivostok

US transport Thomas in Vladivostok. US expeditionary force in the war against Soviet Russia? Anyway, they're up to something militaristic, and this before 1931. Some strange signs in the lower right corner.

Thanks CVB.
Found this on the net: "The Russian Railway Service Corps left San Francisco on Nov. 18. 1917 aboard the US Thomas, and arrived in Vladivostok Dec. 14. By that time Lenin and the Bolshevists had come to power, their services were no longer needed and they put back to Nagazaki for food and supplies". Regards, Stein.

How one link leads to another, http://nortvoods.net/rrs/japan/ there are more links at the bottom of this page showing some of the USA's involvement in Russia during WW1 and beyond, the Russian Railway Service Corps being an American unit. As it is said you truly learn something new each day.
