Value of Old WWI Photos?

I have old negatives of WWI soldiers on horseback. Are these collectible? What is the value of such memorabilia?

War museums would probably love them but they wouldn't pay. If you know the name of the regiment or individuals (some hope!) even better, people looking into their family history would be interested. Whatever you do, don't throw them away!

You can check with your local museum. Our county museum has a section for armed forces items. If you are looking to make money, I would say probably not. Goodness from the heart in sharing, wonderful.

This is a good place to remind everyone to run not walk to their own photos to label the backs of their photos with date, place taken, and names of each individual (and other fun facts please). I have a whole box of pictures and stereoptic (sp) cards that my great grandfather took. They must have been significant at the time or they wouldn't have been taken. Now the information is long lost.


Don't do this to your kids and grandkids. Label those pictures!
