You might know that I have a small collection of First World War postcards, here are photo postcards of three Scottish soldiers. The cards were all published in Glasgow, I often wonder what happened to them.
Photographers must have done a roaring trade. Most people probably didn’t get their photo taken much but obviously men in the forces wanted to have a photo of themselves in uniform, or maybe their wives and mothers wanted the photos taken, just in case they didn’t come home. They’re always sad, especially if they are smiling I think.
