French soldiers manning a barricade - Paris 1871

If you look closely you will see a Cantiniere posed among the infantry.

  1. Ralph that's a nice clear copy of that photo. I think that's a Guard Mobile cantiniere. I hope she got away OK after the government troops put down the Commune. Looks like she wears riding boot even with the infantry.
