First World War - Blackout cartoon postcard Featured Print

First World War - Blackout cartoon postcard

Hoping to see more of you - mindful of the blackout enforced in London during World War one, this couple look forward to getting a better view of each other when their paths next cross! A limited version of the total blackout experienced during World War Two had been introduced in 1915 during the First World War, when German Zeppelins began to drop bombs on their enemy. But then the lights were subdued or dimmed rather than dowsed, and only when a Zeppelin was known to be en route. Date: circa 1915
