Bum Notes – a look at some brassy raspberries

I came across the first of these images “Our Prize Band” many years ago, and largely dismissed it as a humorous postcard, poking fun at bands, since then I have seen two other versions, in French and German, so the original image was clearly re-purposed for at least two alternative markets. Then came the series of French “brass-windy” satirical postcards from the Russo-Japanese war, poking fun mainly at the Japanese troops, but also not above ridiculing their allies, the Russians. The article below goes into more detail about these and some others.
