Postcards - WWI

I scanned my collection of Przemysl postal cards over the weekend. Here is the first batch - some Przemysl WWI scenes.

Kusmanek was the Austrian commander of Przemysl during the siege of 1914-15. Ivanoff was the Russian General who took Przemysl from the Austrians March 1915. Meckensen is the German General who re-took the city on June 3, 1915. The last card is the main bridge - blown by the surrendering Austrians. (Click cards to enlarge)
