  • Lot of 25 Lafayette Escadrille Photos, French Army Archive Copies

    SKU: 21-P-9

     All 5x7 b&w from the "Establissement Cinematographique des Armees, Fort D'Ivry".  Each reverse carries the archive rubber stamp along with a photo number in pencil.  But best of all, there is a detailed caption in pencil on the back of each (names, location, subject).  These also came through the American Heritage photo files.  I would guess these copies date from the 1960s-70s.  In the photo in the upper left you see a sample, this one of a pilot's grave.  Immediately to the right is the reverse with the rubber stamp shown.  Below is the collection itself.  Condition of all is excellent.  Accessing these today from the French Archives would likely cost at least twice what I am asking.
