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?


The Wounded

Another picture coming from my series of restaurated negative glass plates (see my yesterday’s post). As written by my friend Mike Brubaker, these pictures may have been taken in an army’s hospital. 13 more words


The nurse, the nun and the soldiers

I had bought some years ago several negatives on glass plates on eBay; these ones were in bad state and borrowed to my neighbour, who’s a photographer. 74 more words


The crane

Here’s a pic of a crane in France with about 20 Doughboys on it. This crane was probably located near the canal which crosses the little town of TrĂ©veray, therefore I don’t think it was built by US Army.


Louis Armstrong With King Oliver (1918)

From the Louisiana Museum State Jazz Collection.

A young 19-year-old Louis Armstrong, standing next to King Oliver.

No smiling allowed. Smoking cigars is ok though.
