Event Description

This exhibit is composed of postcard photographs that Iowa Mason Jesse Danielson either took or purchased during his tour of duty in France, Belgium and Germany at the end of World War I. Many show the complete devestation of places such as Ypres, Zeebrugge and Ostend in Beligium, Rheims in northeast France and Cologne in Germany. Included in the exhibit are several original World War I posters that had been donated to the Iowa Masonic Library after the War by British Freemason William Crofts-Bullen and the United States War Department.
