Weekly Photo Challenge: Merge #4

A Convoy of American Soldiers Merge down a street in Nancy, France, About 1944                                 35th Quartermaster Division



  1. How many letters before your father gets here?!

    • It seems like a ton! I am not sure when he goes “over” But in my writing I am in Dec 1943 (I am ahead of you a couple of chapters). I know he goes sometime in 1944 so it can’t be much longer. But there are a lot of letters in each month so it will be quite a few more weeks of blogging.

  2. Is this where your name came from?

  3. Just a thought but seeing how this street appears somewhat intact (and I assume it was taken by your father?), there is a very good probability you can trace the location down…

    • Wow! I never thought of that! Anyone want to help?

  4. I have really enjoyed your photos all week. Sorry I have been lame about commenting!

    • Thank you so much! I am really enjoying the Weekly Photo Challenge! Who knew it could be so fun?

      • Do you follow Margarita? Serenity in the City, she has a cool photo blog and all the photos are in NYC and taken with her phone.

      • Wow I bet that is really cool. I will have to see if I can find her.

      • if not, I will send you the link. She’s like you that she has a very different niche on here.

      • Ok send the link. I would like to check it out.

      • Here you go! enjoy!

      • I love it and am now following, thanks!

  5. I look forward to these posts each day, thanks for sharing the stories!!!

  6. You found a photo from “Nancy, France?!?” I need to see if there is a “Robin, France!”

    • ah hahahaha!

      • No “Robin, France,” but I did find this on Wikipedia . . .

        “In some cultures Robyn is strictly female. It has its origin in France and is also a very common surname in France.”

        I didn’t know that! I’m a “Robin,” not a “Robyn” though.

      • Cool to know though…gotta love the internet!
