World War I German soldier's photo album, 13" x 10 1/2", contains about 180 photographs of scenes from the Western front, most second-generation. Included is a 9" x 11" I.S.P. with ink signature of an officer, with other images showing comrades, distant fortifications, battlements, trenches, river obstacles, German graves, balloons and blimps, shattered towns and forests, Christmas festivities...and one image showing a forest floor covered with bodies mown down by gunfire. Very good. Although second-generation, these photos were certainly never mass-produced due to their personal nature.
