With the 100th Anniversary of World War 1 now upon us we offer this lot of 25 real photo postcards. These real photo postcards were the CDVs of their day. Many were taken before the soldier left for the war to give to friends and family and some were taken in the field and sent home.

The cards offered here are early as all but three show the soldiers wearing the spiked helmet or “pickelhaube.” Most of the helmets have covers with regimental numbers on them. Also, almost all are armed and wearing field equipment. All are full standing and several have dates, names or messages on the reverse.
