    As I told in my first post on my old photos collection, I first started buying them for quite a gay reason: cute guys!!! And of course, nothing like a good looking guy in his uniform! These pics come all from around 1914 and the beginning of the Great War.
    I specially love the first pic. Just look at him, so handsome! The pic is amazing!

    The guy on pic.2 is really classy and handsome, but I especially like the guy on pic.3... perhaps because he looks very actual... guys like him you can see nowadays on the streets, whereas the others do look from that certain period, with their well cared moustaches. And I like the fact his uniform doesn't really look at its best, LOL

    And then there's the funny sailors pic with the sign saying “The sea is big, the world is beautiful, and we'll meet again”... well, sort of. I'm not at all strong in German.

    The saddest thing about these four pictures is: how many of them survived the Great War? :(
