From our 'War Picture of the Week' Archive
German Prisoners-of-War, photographed in 1914.
Real color picture made on an unknown place, problably somewhere in Northern France. The surroundings don't look like a POW-
On the left a French chasseur a cheval, cavalry soldier, wearing the famous red pants from the beginning of the war.
The atmosphere seems relaxed. What do the POW's carry under their arms? Laundry? Anyone with a good idea? Please let us know.
We have 250 color pictures from the Great War: many of these original autochromes like the one above and others artificially tinted.
