Photo album of a Napoleonic empire's collection


Recommended Posts

Hi,

This is not my field of collection so I would like to have your opinions about this photo album of a huge collection from the Napoleonic empire. It contains 7 large size photos and the collection is really impressive ! The album is luxurious and measures 30x40 cm
There is a dedication dated from 1933 : "Respectueux Souvenirs à Monsieur Vallot Directeur Général des Services d'Alsace et Lorraine - Strasbourg le 22 Novembre 1933 - Ed.Weil"
I've found out that Paul Valot (and not "Vallot" as written in the dédicace !) was Préfet and Directeur général des services d'Alsace et de Lorraine à la Présidence du Conseil from 1925 à 1941.

I would read the dediction as 1923.

At the original resolution, I can see why you would think that, Andreas. However, when blown up, I think that it is 1933, which fits in with M. Valot's dates of service, of course.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
