If you give a soldier a camera...

Yesterday I bought a ton of old negatives from a shop in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. The negatives were split about 50-50 between 35mm and large format. Today I started looking through them, and the 35mm ones seem like they're mainly family pictures, but then I ran across a few frames that looked like Mont St. Michel in France. Sure enough, the film was labeled "Kodak France." I started going through the large format negatives, and they seem to be mainly pictures of what looks to be immediately post-WWII France - lots of American soldiers, parades, flags, etc. So, that was a bit of Veteran's Day serendipity for me!
