The following 5 Aerial Reconnaissance photos arrived about a week ago.
While I like certain aspects of them, I must admit to being a trifle confused and ultimately would like to know if they are period original - they were purchased as such.
Each photo is approximately 85x115mm and they all appear to have been in an album at some time in the past - each has a triangular mark on the corners.
The Observer in each case was apparently an Oberltn Klug from Feldflieger-Abtlg 10.
What confuses me is that they are the negatives of the photos (look at the writing on each). Is this usual?
I have not done a blacklight test on them - can't find a blacklight today - I'll have to look in a photography store during the week, but they certainly do not appear to be recently made. They appear to be 'of the age'.
The stamps look to be genuine, but I certainly acknowledge that I don't think it would be overly difficult to make one up.
Please note: there is no white border around any of the photos - if it appears, it is where I've cropped the scan.
Any and all assistance gratefully received.
Edit: Amended title - now it's really catchy!
