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.
