This RPPC depicts two US doughboys in a photographers prop plane.

I love the stylistic approach to the aircraft-- I doubt this thing could actually fly!

The background depicts a battle scene of attacking troops, artillery shelling and an airplane shoot down.

The is a French postcard and most likely dates from the end of the War.

    Appears to be a very early sample of superimposing or heads thru a backdrop.
