H048480 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: Interesting album with twenty six 12.5cm x 12.5cm (larger than normal size) photo. Russian front subject matter with a couple of good armor images. Embossed EK1 to the album cover.

GRADE ****                             PRICE $298.00
