British Western Front - Battle of Menin Road: Dug-outs near an overflow from the Ypres- Comines Canal. Note the neat footbridge, which is the work of the men in the dug-out, Belgium.

The Battle of the Menin Road Ridge, sometimes called "Battle of the Menin Road", was the third British general attack of the Third Battle of Ypres in World War I. The battle took place September 20-25, 1917 in the Ypres Salient in Belgium on the Western Front.

Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
