WWI Song Cards.

Recommended Posts

Now that i am back in the States i have had the time to scan some of WWI period song cards that were collected by my grandmother.

 

IMO they are a fantastic set of WWI period cards.They were passed on to my mother who kept them safely and now they are in my possesion.I have to thank my older brother for placing all the cards in a fine album.

 

Sadly,many of the cards do show wear and damage,but not too bad considering they are nearly a hundred years old.

 

This is just a part of the total collection i am posting here.I will post more sets later.

 

When i look at these cards i find them very sad and poignant,but a reflection of the period i think.

 

Regards,Martin.

 

The first set is titled "GOD BLESS MY SOLDIER DADDY".

Excellent song cards Martin.  I only have the one which I have shown previously, so great to see so many of them.
