German World War I Photograph Album, 1917-1918

Creator/Contributor:

Online Archive of California

Abstract:

From dealer description: Photo album with 33 photo engravings and 87 original photographs. Oblong album, 24 x 32.5 cm., engravings and photographs all have the same size (208 x 295 mm.) with a printed caption underneath and a printed plate number in the left hand corner. The photographers were apparently made by a professional war reporter working for the German Supreme Command. All pictures can be dated between the beginning of 1917 and July 1918. Many show important military and political events, including the Kaiser's visit to Riga and Sofia, the 70th birthday of Hindenburg (President), Reichskanzler (Chancellor) Dr. Michaelis' visit to Zeebrugge, and many war scenes all over Europe (Riga; France; Isonzo, Italy). The photo engravings are mainly of the Brest-Litovks meeting (Trotsky).
