Hi,

no, they are all holding drinks. I think they had a Sportfest, if I remember correctly. Did not buy all on offer, only this one because of the Matrose with camera on far left.

Hi Tony,

thanks for posting these. Can you tell me the name of the Hamburg photographer on the back, please?

GreyC

The last one is an Einjährig Freiwilliger of IR 74.

Hi GreyC

firstly thanks for the Id - much appreciated.

pics of the stamp below

Ive been lucky to pick up a few of these from a larger collection. They are bigger than postcard size. 105 x 150 mm.

some have paper slips with information and some notes on the back. 

As usual I can't get past the language barrier so haven't found out anything yet about Hennings 

Nice one

tony

PS

meaning... he's a one-year service volunteer?

Hi,

Hennings and Co was a publishing Company, not a photographer. It was owned by someone called Alfred Niemann.

Hi Gents, hi GreyC,

i've picked up a postcard showing one of these prints I have. I wonder if you can tell any more from the details on the back please?

 

IMG_3369.thumb.JPG.56d78fc857688ede669a345516fe63c2.JPGIMG_3365.PNG.d49c0a1171a1afd66c036b5f518fbfe0.PNGIMG_3364.PNG.843a30d709d93ac826db39cab565830d.PNG

The print is actually the 'smaller' picture. I expected the the way round.  It has a different ratio. Although physically larger the image is cropped left and right. An extra bit on the postcard each end.

while I'm here.....

Hi,

first card says on reverse that proceeds from the sale of these cards go towards the Ostpreußenhilfe, a society that helps rebuild the communities destroyed by the Russians in East-Prussia.

The second card is to the brother of the sender who quite likes it in his Prussian Rekrutendepot in Magdeburg. He will have to go on night-duty soon, otherwise not much to do except shooting practice.

Hi GreyC

Would you agree 'publisher'/printer/copyright  details on the reverse of the first card do not mention 'Jennings co' ?

Sorry to drag on about them but I spend ages myself getting nowhere!

its so frustrating (but no surprise) to get results on Google in German when I search German words!

cheers

tony

ps

GreyC

thanks for second card info

always appreciated

Good morning,

w regards to first card "Eastern theatre of war, catholic field-mass before the battle" the publisher is A. Groß from Berlin. They were one of the leading photo press agencies in Germany at that time. Printed / heliotyped by Brothers Deyle and Wagner, Berlin, distributed by J. Wieland and Co., also from Berlin.

Hi,

#47

Bitsch, 5th Dec. 1912

Dear Anna,

received your letter, thanks for the stamps.

Did not meet Otto on Sunday as I didn´t go out.

Have spent two days in the sickbay this week.

Heinrich Heß also wrote to me that he will come

on leave during Xmas as the beer in Spandau [today part of Berlin]

is too expensive. I want to get some stuff done now and then it´s

good to go off to bed.

Greetings to all

Hugo

The last RPPC has on its front the following text:

4. Rekrutenabteilung, 6. Kompanie, Infanterie Regiment 60, Weissenburg Elsace 1909

We stood vigil at the Vosges for our fatherland´s protection and might.

 

NOTE the signaller with signal-patch standing left to the guy in the light coloured coat.
