by Germany, &c
1935. Original album. Original Boards. Very Good. Post-bound album of faux-crocodile boards, 11.5" x 9.25", containing 43 pages of photographs and real-photo postcards, mounted on leaves of gray stock, some in color, some with hand-printed captions. ~~ The album begins with "My Holiday in Germany, 1935, July 20th-Aug. 5th". Two pages of 14 snapshots of "May & Curt's flat in Sedan Strasse 45/ Erfurt, Germany" include interior and exterior shots, several showing two young women. A few more photographs taken in Erfurt are scattered through the rest of the album, along with views of Oberammergau, including the hotel, street scenes, the town from a distance, etc., many showing two women and one man. These are mixed with photographs of Konigssee (a lake in S. Bavaria in what is now Berchtesgaden National Park), one of which shows a lodge with a Nazi flag flying out front; Watzmann Mountain (2 women hiking, views); Badersee (hotel, mountain scenes) and Grainau; and several photos taken at Richard Wagner's home and theater. In this section are also several postcards of Wagnerian sites, and about 20 depicting Nurnberg in b/w photos. ~~ An unlabeled section of the album contains 9 snapshots that are interior views of a house or lodge; then comes a cruise section, featuring 4 color postcards of P & O Line ships and numerous snaps of men and women on deck (one man wears a beret, one an officer's uniform); also two photos taken in front of a barbed-wire fence across from the Rock of Gibraltar: one of two men in bathing costume, the other of two women. These are accompanied by 3 postcards of Tangier, while another 6 colored real-photo postcards picture stages of a bullfight. ~~ The album then backtracks to "Lido, 1934": beach scenes of men and women on the sands, posing with an automobile, in front of a hotel with palm trees, etc. Lido is followed by "My Holiday with May & Jock, Aug. 1937 Along the Rhine through the Black Forest." Photographs here include Bodensee (a lake on the Rhine), various views and scenes, and three snapshots of Heidelberg, showing two women at an old stone building. There are 8 color postcards of Rothenburg, etc. ~~ Finally, we skip in time back to "1935 Outing to Brighton": 2 group photos, one of 3 women and a car, the other of 5 women and 2 men. The final photos include a wedding portrait of a large group, a 7" x 9" photo of two women and a man exiting a church, and a newspaper headshot of the "Late Queen Astrid" with the notation "Killed at Lucerne".
