Faces of Salonika : photo album for sale

My thanks go to Brian Goodison-Blanks of Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood Limited, Fine Art Valuers and Auctioneers in Exeter, for telling us of a splendid photograph album which will be in their Sporting and Collectors auction on 15 and 16 November.

The only details we have are that it is an album of personal photographs from a gentleman who was on active service in Salonika during the period 1915-1918. From the sample photos I have seen (below) they were either  taken by someone who served with the medical services in Salonika, or worked very closely with them. They certainly look to be a very impressive set of photos. You can find out more about the sale – including a catalogue – here:

The album is item 343 in the Medals and Militaria section, with an estimate of £60-80. Here is a selection of photos from the album:
