Injured driver & badly damaged vehicle from Kraftwagen Depot München, June 1915

Newer Older

Lengthy letter on reverse (see below) dated 29.6.15 with postage cancelled at München the same date.

The sender is a driver attached to Kraftwagen Depot München.

At this stage I'm unaware of the circumstances of the incident that caused the injuries to man seated on the vehicle's running-board, however it looks like he's lucky to have escaped with his life.

Given the date and location the photo was taken, it was unlikely the injuries / damage caused was the result of combat.

    Would you be able to change the "date taken" to the correct one in 1969? I think that'd help people trying to find such photos.

    You can do that by going to "Actions" > "Edit title, tags, and dates"
