L’Illustration Pictures

This is a quick follow up to the last post.  I extracted the pictures from the article and posted them separately below for those who are more visually oriented (like myself).  They are pretty good quality even as cut and paste creations since the original pages were very good hi-res scans.  I noticed on picture 36 that the caserne (barracks) pictured was titled as being in Saida when in fact these unique structures (there were three of them) were actually in Aïn Séfra, Algeria.

I recommend right clicking on the picture and opening in a new tab/window since the new wordpress gallery carousel features is shaving off the captions.

    Great photos! Fantastic Blog! The Polish Legionnaire could be Jan Dorozinski (1865-1928) who died in the USA.
    Have you ever heard about another Polish Legionnaire Andre Krajewski (1886 – 1921), he joined in 1914 and survived the Great War.
    Regards, Andrew Krajewski.

      I have nothing on Legionnaires Dorozinski and Krajewski. A quick Google search shows a Jan Dorozinski buried in Edgehill Cemetery, West Nanticoke, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, USA. Has the same dates you provided. I’ll check some newspapers and some other options. If you know anymore about either of them please let me know. Pictures would be great too. Thanks for commenting.
