Sons of a canteen host of the navy

Recommended Posts

This may be a little "Off Topic", but nonetheless interesting.

For several years I have this postcard

Two weeks ago, on german Ebay, I found the album of one of these boys. I recognized the relationship between the album and the postcard and did my best to get it. --- Got it.

The album is not really a photo album but with pages to fill in just everything about the child. These kind of albums are even today quite popular.

This is the album of Eugen Martin May, born 15th march 1928.

End.

Nothing spectacular, but somehow funny to get the album of somebody who appears on a postcard.

So - if You get this postcard somewhere, think of me - I have the story behind.
