Unidentified cast members in scene from MARCH OF TIME film "The Ramparts We Watch" about America's struggle during World War I. In this scene, reenacted for LIFE, the Kovacs family is sitting on their porch listening to a neighbor's phonograph before the outbreak of WWI. Much of the picture was shot in New London, CT, chosen because the town has not changed much since the war years. MARCH OF TIME feature "The Ramparts We Watch"
