WORLD WAR I
Album comprising snapshots of Gallipoli, Beaumont Hamel, 1916, and Peru and Bolivia by Luis D. Gismondi, 165 gelatin silver and platinum prints, mounted, captioned in ink on mounts, the series of Gallipoli and France preceeded by manuscript titles, contemporary green limp roan binding, oblong folio, [c.1916]

Footnotes

  • The most poignant interest of this album is the last series titled 'France 1916. Prints from negatives taken off a dead German at Beaumont Hamel'. These are mostly of comrades, a few in trenches, as well as some views of destruction (e.g. interior of churches). The last print, in a slightly larger format than most, shows a woman.

    The Gallipoli series, sub-titled 'With the Royal Naval Division, 1915', is very well captioned on the mounts, commencing with the naval bombardment of 25 April 1915, and including Morto Bay, Gully Beach (swimming), Sedd-el-Bahr Forth, Krithia Road, De Totts Battery, Mudros Bay, and Skyros Bay, Imbros. This group seems to have been assembled by a surgeon or someone associated with the 2nd RND Field Ambulance.
