Thanks for the reply There are millions of personal pictures from US soldiers taken in the WWII. The most valuable ones are the color photographs, extremly rare at that time, and also biggest original photographs. Regarding the value of your item, I have just perform a market research of similar sold items as yours. I performed the research based upon the most recent finished auctions and private sells, so the value given is the real market value of your item. This is the only way to know the exact value of your unit.The value will be in the range of 30-50 for the largest ones and 10-15$ for the smallest ones. The prices given are for personal pictures-for instance, pictures where a US soldier simply stands for the picture. If there is any picture that you believe could have historical value, then let me known. Please, use the stars to rate my answer or let me know if I can help you any further!

The pics look like they were purchased in china. Chinese junks in Shanghai harbor, the bund from pooyung side of whangpoo, garden bridge & broadway mansion. Soldiers are mostly chinese. Aerial pics of Nanking road.
