I found a bit of information on the web about the photographer, Thomas Fuller of Amesbury, Salisbury UK. Interestingly there is no Wikipedia about him. And I ran the image through Tineye and Google Image search and they both found nothing. Must be a bit of a rare image. Where did you get it, Armand?

I picked it on a FaceBook-page and was likely surprised by it's rarity.
BTW another picture among this collection was from a highschool yearbook from 1971, showing the 3 guys playing at the high school prom. They called their band the strangest name: Zee Zee Top :-o

At least the term "concentration camp" has a bit more ominous tone now...

As explained by Ricky (on question) in another posting:

.........A Concentration Camp is purely somewhere where you gather a group of similar things together - concentrating them. This is the same reason behind the name of the infamous Nazi camps, only they were concentrating groups of people they didn't like.
Even that use was pioneered by the British, with Boer civilians in the Boer War, in an effort to remove the support base of the guerilla Boers. Sadly the camp conditions were awful, but more due to ineptitude than malice.

The Americans had concentration camps before the 1850s. They were called reservations.

 

Reconcentration Policy

General Valeriano Weyler y Nicolau understood very quickly that the key to a Spanish victory over the insurgents was to strip the guerrillas of their abilities to live off the land and camouflage themselves in groups of civilians. To this end, he began a policy of moving Cuban civilians to central locations where they would be under the control of the Spanish army. In addition, he put the entire island under martial law.

The policy had disastrous consequences. Unlike many concentration camps in the twentieth century, the idea was to keep the Cuban civilians alive and protected until the Spanish were victorious. Unfortunately at least 30% perished from lack of proper food, sanitary conditions, and medicines. The policy generated severe anti-Spanish feeling in the United States which helped propel it into war in 1898. Finally, it did not benefit the Spanish in the war.
