Pépin Eugène (attr.): Vermandovillers, arrivée des renforts français, septembre 1916
Vue oblique: taken from a balloon at 200 m.
A very touching (and therefore rare) picture of the trenches in Europe. French reenforcement arriving at the front of the Somme department in Picardie.
You can see the environment has sufferd from the war. Foxholes in the trenches and even the soldiers are clearly visible!
