Imperial War Museum: old battlefield, Somme ca. 1917
A touching photograph of the 'Old Battlefield' from the Windmill Pozieres 16, September 1917.
A British officer is looking over the field, filled with bomb craters. A tank can be seen in the distance. The sun is shining hopefully over this field of honor.
A later press print from the Imperial War Museum. Some retouching visible on the soldier's right arm.
Stamped and titled on the verso.
ca. 6 x 8 inch silver gelatine
