This unknown soldier appears to be wearing a "doughboy" uniform. He could be American or French. I don't have knowledge on this subject. If anyone knows, please feel free to correct me on this.

The YMCA made these postcards available to American troops returning from World War I. The back provided room to put the soldier's name, date of arrival, unit, troopship, camp to which he was headed and mailing address of a family member. This was a way to let loved ones know that the soldier had returned safely to the United States and would soon be writing them a letter. Well Done Men America Greets YOU YMCA (beneath statue) STATUE OF LIBERTY, NEW YORK CITY Statue of Liberty on Bedloe's Island in New York Bay 1 1/4 miles from the Battery, a colossal figure of Liberty enlightening the World. It lights the harbor with an electric torch held 306 feet above the water, the highest beacon in the world. Was presented to America by the French nation.

A badly damaged "realphoto" postcard showing a World War I soldier who died in action. The light color of his coat and other details make me think he may have been French. Nobody will ever know who he was and his family would never know what became of him.

A "realphoto" postcard apparently made from an aerial reconnaissance photo showing a World War I battlefield. Visible in the central part of the photo are straight lines and corners - the remains of buildings. This may be a whole town or village that was completely destroyed by shelling. A trench system is visible circling the destroyed town and the ground across the whole photo is covered with bomb and shell craters. There is no writing anywhere on this postcard that would tell where the photo was taken. Wikipedia has a photo that strongly resembles this one in an article about the Belgian municipality of Zonnebeke, but there's no way for me to tell if it really is the same area.

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.
