This dramatic, hand-colored photograph of a Red Cross nurse bringing aid to a theatrically wounded World War I soldier may be an early movie still. City directories indicate that an Alva Studio operated in Harlem at 111 West 125th Street under the proprietorship of photographer Morris Licht. It is possible that this photograph was a product of Licht's studio.
