Where else can I look

Hi all

I'm still on the hunt for Pont Rouge photos/postcards

The Pont Rouge that I am looking for is in the Warneton or Ploegsteert area of Belgium, just across the river Lyse from Deulemont

I look on eBay and delcampe.net. Anyone know of any other good sites that sell postcards

Hello, afin de venir en aide voici une explication: WARNETON est une ville frontière avec la Lys, situation 12 km de Lille, 14 km de Ypres, 8 km de ARMENTIERES, le quartier du PONT-ROUGE est situé sur le territoire de WARNETON, comme le quartier du ROOSTER et celui de la BASSE-VILLE. Salutations WALBEER;

Hello Jim

Thanks for that, I have those eight postcards and found a number of others on delcampe.net over time, really on the hunt for new material and places to look. ultimately I would like postcards showing the war. I have loads of aerial photos from the war but would like to see the area from ground level so to speak. The New Zealanders were there in 1917

Hello walbeer

Thanks for the correct location and explication where to find Pont Rouge, I have herd La Basse Ville called 'lower town' so gather it is the lower town of Warneton

Hello to help here is an explanation: WARNETON is a border town with Lys, location 12 km from Lille, 14 km from Ypres, 8 km ARMENTIERES, the district BRIDGE RED is located on the territory of WARNETON, as the district ROOSTER and that of LOWERTOWN. Greetings WALBEER;
