Photo album of a Napoleonic empire's collection

Recommended Posts


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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
