Finally got time to really go through the four photo albums: my rough count  is about 1,200 military photos, post cards and bits of original trench maps  - all World War 1 - and maybe hundreds of "tourist" postcards from the turn of the 20th century.  Scroll down for a YouTube video.

The photos are original photos including Real Photo Post Cards. Most of the post cards are tinted and pre-WWI, except for some post-WWII travel postcards in one of the four albums.

 

The are two large albums and two smaller ones. The veteran who started this collection stamped in his name on seemingly every image in the two larger volumes.

Overall it's a captivating look back in history with as much German as American images.

 

I took some quick photos of less than five percent of the military images and made that into a You Tube movie:
