H036967 PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM. (Photographie Stammbuch)

BACKGROUND: Basic human instinct dictates that soldiers in the field, regardless of nationality, long for their loved ones at home. As a result it was very common for these soldiers to have themselves photographed and send the photos home or create a photo album to preserve their memories. As today, there were also numerous other reasons to pose for a photograph, new appointments, promotions, weddings anniversaries etc., etc.. Along with the standard, commercially produced photo albums certain units would also purchase personalized photo albums that would have been available for private purchase at garrison and barracks canteens or distributed as a commemorative gift.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Photograph album that is embossed "4. Kompanie" "Wachtruppe Berlin" that has no pictures to the inside pages. The pages and liner pages show wear to the edges with some light tears, as well as to the front cover. Famous GD unit!
