One of 185 black and white photographs in an album, taken in France during World War I by Sergeant John Lord. Some pages are blank.
Photographs in the album depict army camps, hospitals, trenches, early tanks, landscapes, cemeteries and graves and groups of posed Australian soldiers. The places Lord mentions in his captions are La Boiselle, Quarry Siding, Pozieres, Albert, Bapaume and Favreuil.
