Title: Ypres
Creator: Unknown author
Description: (Black and White) This is a book of ten uninscribed, unposted postcards. There are five sets, each set showing pictures of Ypres before and after the war. The photographs include images of the post-office, Biebuyk's house, the gate of St. Martin's Cloister, the Clothier's Halles, and St. Martin's Cathedral. The cards are perforated, so that the user can easily tear them out. The book is covered in a neutral rough brown paper, and printed with blue ink. While this is Series No. 2, each image is numbered. Images in this book include numbers 1511, 40419-6, 221114-21, 120619-1, 40113-1, 260419-37, 40704-1, 40419-29, 1405, and 40419-31. The individual postcards, after perforation, measure 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. The postcards are individually titled as follows: Ypres. Maison Biebuyk/Ypres. Biebuyk's house
