Best Wishes from Bône

 

 

I know, it can seem a bit controversial to post a picture of Algeria on a blog expressively dedicated about France, especially a picture from back when Algeria was a French colony. I by no means am implying anything with this postcards, and honestly, I wish that France had never colonized anybody.

However, history is history and I can’t rewrite it.

That being said, this postcard (a few more are coming) is more recent that the other ones as it was sent by my dad (to his parents) when he was stationed in Algeria, especially in Bône (nowadays Annaba) during the Algerian Independence War (for which he had the bad luck, like most men his generation, to be drafted).
