WWI Postcards (1917)

Postcards allow us to share our experiences with family and friends through visuals and words. Below are two postcards sent home by a WWI soldier. One features a drawing of Weigel Boulevard at Camp Devens along with a few soldiers milling about. The other postcard features a sight which overseas soldiers might have seen in France: the Palais Garnier, a major opera house in Paris. These two locations, though separated by an ocean, were both sights a soldier from West Boylston may have seen during his tenure in the military.
