6 Cabinet Card photos of the German Kaiser, 2 of Wilhelm I, 1 of Friedrich Wilhelm III, and 3 of Wilhelm II, each different. One of the Wilhelm ! has him in Guard spiked helmet with Pour le Merite and 1st and 2nd class Iron Crosses, the other similar but without helmet. The cabinet card of Friedrich Wilhelm III shows him in uniform with decorations including Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, Hohenzollern House Order, Black Eagle and more. Wilhelm II is shown as a younger man in Uhlan uniform with Black Eagle at his throat, then in Daeth Head Hussar’s uniform with saber, and many decorations, and finally one with his family including the Crown Prince in uniform with sword at about age 7. There are also fine cabinet cards of von Roon and of Bismarck in uniform, and a compiled photo cabinet card of the German Imperial family with all three Kaisers and their wives and families. There are also three CDVs, one of von Moltke, one of Friedrich Wilhelm III, and one of an officer identified on the reverse as Crown Prince, probably a younger Friedrich Wilhelm III. Then there are three postcards, one a lithograph in color of Wilhelm II’s family, one a Turkish compilation of Wilhelm II, Franz-Josef of Austria, and Kemal Attaturk of Turkey, the leaders of the Triple Alliance, and finally a fine colored postcard of Wilhem II’s family including Dowager Kaiserin Victoria.
