New Acquisition: “Millie’s Nine”

As mentioned in the (WWI-unrelated) one-shot post I wrote in the wee hours of this morning, I recently obtained 9 new Great War stereoviews from a very kind lady on eBay. Here they are, in the order they were stacked in within the box, with captions when available. All are 45x107mm glass positives.

_WWI-1
“II-A-6 . American museum at Chateau-Thierry”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.

N.B. Brentano’s sets marketed under the “Over There Group” imprint have English-language captions, and were marketed to British and American markets.

_WWI-2
“II-A-20 . Marching on Chateau-Thierry”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.
_WWI-3
“Près du Fort de Vaux 1916” (“Near Fort Vaux 1916”), From LSU, #2012.
_WWI-4
Caption destroyed; only the number “33” is legible. From Brentano’s.
_WWI-5
“II-A-22 . American Flags in the Victory Parade – Paris”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.
_WWI-6
“II-A-21 . French and American sentinels (Vosges)”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.
_WWI-7
“II-A-16 . Ruined church at Montfoucan”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.
_WWI-8
“II-A-23 . Heavy guns fallen by our troops”, from Brentano’s / Over There Group.
_WWI-9
“(I-F-7) Interior of the Tank “St. Chamond”, Brentano’s / Over There Group.

The only way I was able to figure out the title to the above image was by using the digital negative I’d scanned to enhance the detail of the margin between the two exposures.

Enhanced margin detail from previous slide.

And that’s the set. It’s in no way cohesive, but there you go – some new images and a repeat for my collection of Brentano’s, and an LSU image I’ve wanted a copy of for a long time. I’m glad to have found it – thanks Millie!
