The Merci Train : Photos in the newsUpdated : April 30, 2015
A picture says more than a thousand words.
So here is my collection of photograps of the "Merci Train" from 1948 and 1949.
Don't forget to watch my collection of newsreel footage from 1948 / 1949 that gives more visual impressions.
Only photos of the actual "Merci Train", the Merci boxcars and people associated with the "Merci Train" are included in this list. Photographs of the gifts from the "Merci Train" are not included.
Most photographs are what is called "stock photos" and were used by countless newspapers and magazines around the USA and the world. The naming of a source is therefore only to identify the individual scan.
On this page you can see thumbnail-photos of the photographs.
The full-size photographs are on a password protected page.
However - the quality of the full-size photographs vary a lot, because most of them are from scanned newspapers. Only a few are high-quality scans.
If you have, or know of any new pictures
and / or a better scan / version of a photograph already listed below :
PLEASE - email me.
