WWI Panoramic, 5th Engineers

Section of the panoramic photo I found in my grandfather's old belongings. The bottom says "Recruit Battalion 5th Engineers Camp A.A. Humphreys VA August 1st, 1918. Tr. Regiment". My grandfather wasn't old enough to be one of the probably thousand individuals in the photo (which is about 9 inches in height, 54 inches in length). The front mark in the corner says "Clements, Wash. DC". Don't know a lot of the history but dried it out and had it archivally framed. It had been rolled in the damp basement for probably many years so it's in decent condition for what it went through.
