Six First War Downed Aircraft Photographs

Both are black and white, on a standard photographic paper, with a gloss finish. First photo illustrating the German Luftschiff [airship] Zeppelin (LZ87) emerging from an aerodrome, with multiple figures towing it below, inscribed in handwritten blue ink "1st Zep shot down over England - from Spich Germany / 7 Sqd. Army of Occupation Airdrome" on the reverse, 86 mm x 145 mm, light soiling overall and edge creasing. Second photo illustrating the same aerodrome, with its doors partially open, inscribed "Rauchen verboten" (No Smoking) on the walls on either side of the doors, unmarked on the reverse, 96 mm x 118 mm. Both are slightly curled, very fine and extremely fine, respectively.

Footnote: The first flight of the German P Class Luftschiff Zeppelin (LZ87) took place on December 6, 1915. During its existence, it participated in two attacks on Ramsgate and Margate, dropping a total 3,000 kg (6,600 lb) of bombs. In July 1916, it was handed over to the German Navy, where it performed sixteen reconnaissance missions around the Baltic Sea. It was later used as a school ship and was decommissioned in July 1917.
