- Photographic postcard of two unidentified World War I soldiers. The soldiers stand on either side of a small white table with a vase of flowers at the center. Each soldier stands with his fingers outstretched in front and behind the vase. Both are wearing full uniforms with caps, high-collared jackets, and wool trousers. The one on the photograph's left has white puttee wrappings from his ankle to knee while the one on the right has dark puttee wrappings. The photograph has a white border surrounding the image. There is a large crease mark on the bottom right where the postcard had previously been folded. 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]. The postcard is blank.
