An unfortunate caption for this batch of photos: “Various unidentified early pictures of soldiers.” My criteria for photo selection (which is completely subjective and not at all scientific) is based on which images I think look interesting, and then I find the corresponding information in the database after. Sometimes I get lucky, sometimes I don’t. However, I like to keep posting the photos with poor-to-mediocre captions anyway. Not only are these good pictures, but I’m always hopeful that one of our readers will recognize an aspect of the photo and leave us a note about it.
I think these were likely taken in France.
I’m not familiar enough with 1910s European style dress to identify this location. If anyone knows, we’d love to update our files with this information.
