WW1 photo ID & German translation
« on: Friday 17 November 17 15:13 GMT (UK) »
A long shot perhaps, but does anyone know of/recognize what I think is a 'cafe' for German soldiers in Bouconville, France 1916?  Also if anyone is able to translate any of the writing on the back I'd be grateful.  Thanks.

Hi

And here is the translation:

Thank you very much for the
letter of the 27.7 and the little parcel
with sausage. On this card you see
one of the paintings with which
I decorated the soldiers home.
It was not easy to take this photo
as it is the case with all
the takes inside a room.
I’m still well and I’m sending
with much desire a goodbye
kind regards and kisses.


Regards
