Rob, that first photo, does it depict an early O2 mask for high altitude flights? Wonder how high does that Fokker DVII flies?
Yes, that’s correct. Without oxygen, pilots would often fly up to 20,000 ft., and higher still, but would often lose consciousness and suffered from headaches regularly. The oxygen, as you’d expect, allowed sustained recon and combat, but was still a limited support technology.

Fascinating collection, as ever. Pedro, looks to me that you could get quite high at ground level breathing that thing.
