The wounded


I admit I am late for today’s post, but this picture comes directly from today’s flea market, we can say I always offer you fresh material!

To be honest, such a picture could have been taken in any hospital from any army during any of the two world wars. In fact, there’s no way to identify any uniform, nor to find any hint on this picture.

As the picture was bought in Milan, I am almost sure this picture was taken in an Italian hospital. And the terrible wounds of these soldiers (some of them are even mutilated) remind well the typical wounds of the Great War.

One thought on “The wounded

  1. This is striking photo with a very honest quality. The composition could almost be a painting by some great painter. Thank you for bringing it into the light so soon after its discovery.
