On January 25, George Ranch Historical Park will have an unforgettable look into WWII! See three different camp settlements from American, German and Russian troops as they demonstrate what soldier life was like during the war. Also, be sure to stop by the Linke House to see a WWII Command Post, including field phones, bridge security, parachute load out and more!

NOTE: The time listed is the opening hours for the Ranch, not our meeting time. HoustonPhotowalks will first meet for breakfast and then walk the ranch exhibits at each person’s own pace. Come-and-go as your schedule permits (we will not be able to group-up inside the ranch).

This is a *great* opportunity for photographers who want to practice film photography skills!

Join us for breakfast! Here’s the link:
