This photo album starts with what I believe are photographs of a peaceful Germany from either before or during WW I’s early part. We see many scenic photographs of rural Germany both during the milder times of the year and winter. Some of these photographs show a fairly grand estate that could well have belonged to a freiherr or a graf. It even may have belonged to one of the men that we will see a bit later on. Next, we begin to see photographs of groups of officers and more military scenes. We catch a glimpse of flight badges in some of the photos. We see scenes of merriment among the men. Nobody lets their hair down like the Germans when the schnapps come out.
We see photos of damaged buildings and even a photo where a German plane has crashed into a building. Many photos were taken by observation aircraft. In these, we can clearly see the damage wrought to the terrain by both bombers and artillery. They look like moonscapes. More than forty-five photographs are in the album.
