H039962 TRANSITIONAL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPH POSTCARD.(Photographie Postkarte)
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 purchase, or appropriate, "sweetheart" items and send them home. Although there was almost an unlimited selection of "sweetheart" items one of the most popular items were the photograph postcards which were relatively inexpensive, easily mailed and distinctly personal. As today, there were also numerous other reasons to pose for a photograph, new appointments, promotions, weddings anniversaries etc., etc.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Nice studio portrait of a young soldier wearing a M16 Transition double decal helmet and M36 field blouse with early shoulder straps. Roughly, 9cm x 14cm mid-weight cardstock. Reverse is not filled in. Unmailed. The unused photo postcard is in overall good condition with light age yellowing. Nice example.
GRADE ****1/4 PRICE $59.00
