“HONOR TO THE OLD SOLDIERS, COURAGE FOR THE ROOKIES” – GROUP PHOTO OF WORLD WAR I ERA FRENCH SOLDIERS

military group 3

military group 4 This vintage real photo postcard features a group of World War I era French soldiers. Two men in the front row are holding a sign. The men are part of the 148th regiment (?). The text on the sign is related to a French military slogan that states “Honneur aux anciens, courage aux bleus”. This roughly translates to “honor to the old soldiers, courage for the rookies”. In French, “bleu” means “rookie”. The slogan refers to the historical fact that in the late 1700’s, rookies wore blue uniforms, while more veteran soldiers wore white uniforms. This vintage postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition.

PORTRAIT OF 4 DETECTIVES AND A UNIFORMED OFFICER STANDING IN FRONT OF A POLICE STATION (1930’S)

police

police 1 This vintage photograph features five policemen posing in front of the entrance to an unknown French city’s police department. Four of the men are dressed in plain clothes. They are likely detectives. A uniformed officer stands behind the plainclothesmen. None of these men are rookies. They look hardened and not the type of men you would want to enrage. Note that three of the men have pens in their pockets. The pens are easy to reach for writing citations. The signs on the wall of the building appear to say “Gardiens” (Police) and “Commissariat” (Department). This photograph appears to have been taken in the 1930’s. The photo measures about 5″ x 7″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

EXOTIC LOOKING FRENCH MOTHER AND HER BABY SITTING ON THE HIGHEST HIGH CHAIR IN THE WORLD

high chair baby high chair baby 1 This vintage real photo postcard features an exotic looking mother posing with her baby. The child is sitting on the highest high chair that I have ever seen. Using an elevated chair is very smart. The chair puts the child at the mother’s level and makes for a better posed photograph. I have not seen this photographic strategy employed before. The mother has very short hair and a serious expression. She is wearing a stylish collar pin and necklace. Note her fashionable boots. A stamp on the reverse of the postcard reveals that the photographer was “Pornet” and his/her studio was in Roanne, France. Roanne is a town in central France and is located 90 km northwest of Lyon. This vintage photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).  (SOLD)
