First World War Images

Updated July 14, 2010

During my research on the First World War, I have accumulated postal history and War-related "collateral". Such collateral items include: keepsakes, photographs, medals, posters, and even a silk scarf. This page links you to some images of War-related items.

Whenever I look at a photograph showing these naive young people, I see youth and enthusiam reflected back. Many of these men and women did not return from overseas, and others came home with terrible wounds. In addition, both soldiers and civilians in the United States were cut down by the influenza epidemic of late 1918. Such was the crucible of fire brought about by this War.

Note also that I have a listing and some images of Jewish Welfare Board ship postcards on a separate page, as well as a page for war-rate postal history.
