Album of 95 black and white photographs taken by Sergeant John Lord, 13th Field Ambulance, France, 1916-1917. The album was compiled by Lord after his return to Australia at the end of the war.

This album has been very carefully prepared and the quality of the photographs is generally good. The album appears to have been prepared to 'showcase' the photographs Lord took whilst in France in 1916-1917. The subjects of the photographs are trenches (both German and Allies), horses, camps, farms, graves and cemeteries, civilians, soldiers, churches and other buildings. Many of the photographs were taken around the town of Albert and are dated 1916 and 1917.
