Today's picture is from World War I, and it shows a group of soldiers wearing Gas Masks. I don't have the location, but this does look to be in a war area, not a training area. Poison gas was widely used in World War I.
Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
About this site:
I have been an avid collector of old photographs and documents for over 30 years. The photographs on this site are derived from material I have collected over the years. Some came from old family albums, some from material I bought at flea markets over the years, and some from government archives of public domain images, including the US Library of Congress, and the National Archives. We appreciate you visiting this blog, and hope you find it interesting.
