A souvenir postcard from the Great War

A souvenir postcard from the Great War

Look at what the ornate white type says, at the corner of the postcard: “Un Souvenir.” A memory.

This is a funny thing in our time: the thought of sending a postcard home depicting ourselves in the battlefield being attacked, cringing for cover, with our weapons and our packs close to our bodies—postcards are a thing to send home from a vacation, are they not?

The reverse of the postcard contains a message from Camille to Louise.
