- Photographic postcard of World War I soldier. The soldier appears standing in front of an exterior wall of lace-curtained windows, visible from the knees up. He is wearing a full uniform and looking directly at the camera. The photograph has a white border on three sides of the image, the right half looks like it has been cut and does not have the border. The image is vertical while the postcard is horizontal. The back of the postcard has the words, [CARTE POSTALE] on the top. Underneath are sections for [Correspondance] and [Adresse]. Below the Adress are four lines for text that begin with [M]. Written in graphite on the bottom left is the inscription [Infantry 'crossed -rifles' collar disk].
