Description

Alfieri was a London firm that produced many unique images of the war. In Australia the firm is best known for producing pictures of the Anzac troops at Gallipoli and a photo-documentary book called The Dardanelles (1916?).

In this collection of 19 loose photographs, the images appear to be from 1914 and show the unmechanised side of the early war.
