Images of World War I

Kim forwarded me a link to BoingBoing that contained some of these images, and a link to the tumblr page containing many more. Looking at the people in these photos, you realize that none of them are alive today, as the photos are anywhere from ninety-five to ninety-nine years old. They’re a remarkable snapshot of a war which hits its centennial next August.

The man who snapped these photos was a German officer, the great-grandfather of the man who is making this a kickstarter project. It really is a great look into a less-frequently shown side of the war – many photos from that era are from the Allied/Entente perspective, not the Central Powers.
