About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Army GIs in Southern France: 1944

Army GIs in Southern France: 1944

This photograph comes from my grandfather John "Jack" Baker's Warbook. It is of two unknown Army GIs in Southern France. Based on the large road sign, we can assume that the location of this photo is 15 kilometers from Sainte Maxime. In the right hand side of the photo, you can also see a sign with the numbers 61 on it. This is likely D61 which would mean the picture was likely taken around Port Grimaud. Although not signed, this photo was probably taken by Dale Rooks sometime in the last two weeks of August, 1944. View full size.
