Group Description

This group focuses on antique photographs taken in the German states and the German Empire, or by German photographers abroad, from the invention of photography to the end of World War One.

A note regarding WWI items: all photos taken by German amateur or professional photographers in occupied territories (France, territories of the Russian Empire, Romania etc.) are fully adequate to the group, as they reflect the German perspective and photographic tradition.
