A photo of the Interior of Reims Cathedral after German shelling. A commercially published mass produced tinted postcard, probably part of a series. Caption reads: "3. REIMS (1919). -- Interieur de la Cathédral (au fond, trou causé par un obus de 380)" Google Translate: "Interior of the Cathedral (basically, hole caused by a shell of 380)"
A photo of Reims in ruins after the German retreat. A commercially published mass produced postcard, probably part of a series. Written on the back "22 May 1919" (I don't know whether that's the date this photo was actually taken). Caption reads: "2. REIMS dans les ruines après la retraite des Allemands -- Place d'Erlon vers St. Jacques" Google Translate: "REIMS in ruins after the retreat of the Germans -- Place d'Erlon towards St. Jacques"
A detail of the Reims aerial recon photo of Reims, France - Cathedral after German shelling. This is an enlarged detail from a recon photo that I uploaded separately.
An Aerial recon photo of Reims, France after German shelling This "realphoto" postcard appears to have been made from an aerial reconnaissance photo of Reims, France, taken after the German shelling of the city. The German spelling of "Kathedrale" leads me to think this may have been a German recon photo. There is a lot of detail in this photo, but I don't think much will show up clearly after the Ancientfaces image processing. I've uploaded an enlarged detail of the cathedral separately.
A photo of Cattle being loaded aboard a French dreadnought Caption reads: "French Dreadnought being stocked with live cattle from a transport."
There is nothing written on this postcard, but I believe it dates from World War I. There are many civilians, including women, on deck among the sailors. The sailors appear to be wearing hats with pompons on top - probably French.
This is a commercially published, mass produced postcard. The verse at the bottom reads: Le devoir a son temps, l'amour égalemant: Acceptez ce bouquet d'un parfait combattant. (Translation by Google) Duty has its time, love also: Accept this bouquet of a perfect fighter. A soldier evidently bought this as a souvenir and mailed it home. Handwritten on the back: "A good picture of a French soldier as they appear while on furlough."
A postcard showing YMCA volunteers decorating American graves in France after World War I. Written on the back "Decoration Day American Y girls decorating soldiers graves". 2nd grave from the left is Private, First Class George S. Kerr. Center grave is Private Michael Borczynski. I can't make out the names on the other crosses. This photo was likely taken in May of either 1919 or 1920. rank blurred and difficult to read (PVT. W1?) KERR, GEORGE S. 165TH AERO SQDN DIED MAR. 11th 1919 service number 1148694 rank - PVT BORCZYNSKI, MICHAEL CO. I 347th INF. DIED OCT. 25th 1918 service number 2950991
