Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Some Fresh World War I Images

Some days,  I just get tired of the same old photos from the war and I go searching through online archives to see if I can spot something that captures my eye.  Here are some of the "Finds" from my latest excursion.

Kepi Worn by Kiffin Rockwell, Lafayette Escadrille ( National Air & Space Museum)

Memorial Matchbox for Horatio Kitchener (Smithsonian)

"The Edge of Belleau Wood," J. Andre Smith (National Museum of American History)

Suffragette Procession, Washington, DC (National Museum of American History)

Turkish Artillery Column Marching Toward the Suez Canal (NY Public Library)

German Soldiers Bathing in the Laon Canal (NY Public Library)

Insignia for French Aero Squadron, SPA (Spad) 75 ( National Air & Space Museum)

Guard Detail, 369th Infantry (NY Public Library)

Sopwith Snipe ( National Air & Space Museum)


  1. Interesting exercise. There are some great photos that get overlooked.

  2. Very nice.
    Love the Turkish artillery one, from a neglected front.

  3. Thanks for including the suffrage image. It is a nice reminder of the war's influence on social developments.
