SOLDIER

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of a smartly dressed young World War I era soldier. He looks quite handsome in his uniform and clearly has his “game face” on. The photographer of this image is Gustave Cade. He operated a studio at 8 Rue de la Barillerie in Nantes, France. Nantes is a city in western France, located on the Loire River.

  1. Nantes is very close to my hometown and we have close ties to that town. I went there quite often as a child. I walked the Rue de la Barillerie before…It’s somewhat weird to think this young man could have known some of my ancestors.
