"Front français de la Meuse. Un cantonnement. La corvée d'eau", 1914-1918
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of photographs of World War I scenes in France and other countries. While the majority depict military installments, soldiers, and high-ranking officers, there are a large number of portraits of everyday people and landscape photographs. The photographs were tipped into photo albums. Some of them have appeared in published works. Most of the photographs bear a handwritten caption in French on the reverse side, though some are in English. The captions have been copied verbatim and serve as folder titles.
