These original, private and unpublished photographs (all from the same series) show German soldiers in an unidentified French village. I would guess these were taken in 1914.
They look relaxed and appreciative of rural life...
Thanks to you all for your comments!
Philippe, this album is unfortunately anonymous. There are many more pictures, but all of them are glued on pages. I wish someone could identify this French village. There are several photographs of the church, which should be enough (there are 34.965 communes in France...).
