Germany, Paris: 1942-1946.
Unbound. A collection of 296 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin-silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 5" x 7" with some captions on the verso. Photos are curled with some edgewear thus very good. An archive of World War II-era photographs following soldiers through Europe and on leave at home. The images are better than average for amateur photography and seem to have been taken by an Army photographer who is pictured in a few of the photos. Scenes of Germany and Paris are featured throughout the collection with images of everyday life, such as people waiting in line at an ice cream cart in Paris and views from store windows as well as photos of the soldiers. One photo reads, “formation for retreat in the quadrangle. We are standing “at ease.” That was when I carried a rifle.” The men are seen posed together, in candids, and participating in Army drills.
A nice collection of Army snapshots from World War II.
