Coloured postcards showing the ruins of Ypres, including the Templiers' house and the post office; unidentified ruins; the Middle States' School, where Edmund Blunden writes 'We were billeted in it once. Draughty!'; and ruins on a town street. 'The book was compiled by Blunden with the intention of providing complementary photographs supporting the narrative and poems of 'Undertones of War' (1928), and was inscribed 'E.B. New Year, 1935' while Blunden was living in North Oxford, a neighbour of Graham Greene.
