Playing cards (the German side)

Another picture about card players (see yesterday’s post), but this time from the German side. The environment is more cosy: according to the caption, these officers are playing in former Russian mess for officers.


Card Players

Blurred details & fingerprints, but it’s still a nice photograph. All soldiers are looking at the photographs, with the exclusion of two of the players, who are of course more interested in their game!


Old soldiers

The most striking element of this group photo of French soldiers is their age. They were probably working in a hospital and belonged to the territorial army.


The bathroom

Well, this is a rather strange location for a studio group photograph, don’t you think?
