A new book by Peter Walther, “The First World War in Colour” is out with color images from WWI that were made with the “autochrome” process. These extremely rare photos have hardly ever been seen before now. Although heavily staged, the images give a shocking glimpse into what life must have been like at the front. Image above from Taschen.
Here is a link to the Taschen website that has the book for sale and more images to view.

This is a rather interesting short history of Ft. Meigs, Ohio and the Maumee Valley. Published in 1886, I believe the copyright is defunct. If anyone disagrees, I will happily take it down. This copy has been in my family for a long, long time and is in bad shape so I decided to scan it so it can be read without further damage.
