Hi,

browsing thru the forum I came across this #2 post which was posted way back, so I don´t know if this is still of interest. But the signature on the mount of the photo does not designate the person in the photo but the photographer. His name was Vahldiek. There was a photographer in the 1870s by that name in Brunswig, so this photographer could be from that family (though the town´s name does not really look like Braunschweig. Not to be confused with another family of photographers in Schleswig Holstein and Rostock by the name of Vahlendieck.

Would anyone happen to have photos of original WW1 German Bergmützen? I've been searching for photos of original ones, but only having little luck. Thanks
