This is a very high quality photo of Assembly Depot 0-640, Tidworth, Wilts, England taken by a U.S. Army Signal Corps photographer on 8 September 1943. This is a facility that took jeeps from their shipping containers or preparation, after the trans-Atlantic journey aboard ship, and turned them into field-ready condition. Under magnification you can read the hood registration numbers on two of the jeeps: 20340608 and 20342973.

The Signal Corps photo number is visible in the lower right and the Signal Corps logo is in the lower left.
