Les Zouaves avec une mitrailleuse Saint Étienne Mle. 1907 de 8-mm. Nord de la France, 1914.



The Zouaves with a 8-mm. Saint Étienne Machine Gun Model 1907. Northern France, 1914.

Note:

This photo and others like it, taken during maneuvers immediately preceding the outbreak of war, were reproduced in graphs magazines and postcards to illustrate the first battles of August 1914.

For this reason, maybe the photograph I have colored above corresponds to one of the mentioned maneuvers. In any case, my purpose remains valid when publishing this photograph: reflect the exoticism of the Zouaves uniforms.



Los Zuavos con una ametralladora Saint Étienne Modelo 1907 de 8 mm. Norte de Francia, 1914.

Nota:

Esta fotografía y otras similares, tomadas durante las maniobras inmediatamente precedentes al estallido de la guerra, se reprodujeron en revistas gráficas y tarjetas postales para ilustrar los primeros combates de agosto de 1914.

Por ello es posible que la fotografía que he coloreado aquí arriba corresponda a una de las citadas maniobras. En todo caso, sigue siendo válida mi finalidad al publicar esta fotografía: reflejar el exotismo de los uniformes de los zuavos.
