Picture Postcards from the Great War (French)

Current Location

Private Collection
United Kingdom


Sending, receiving and collecting picture postcards was very popular in the Great War. Many soldiers on active service on the Western Front  would buy postcards in local shops as souvenirs or to send home to loved ones. The subject matter was usually romantic and sentimental.

These examples were lent to the project by a member of the Horsler family whose ancestors' WW1 story is told here.
