Apprentices workshop of a metal works. My grandfather worked there. The picture is undated, I estimate its 1920s or 1930s.
Great-Grandfathers Bakery My Great-Grandfather was a baker. In this photograph you can se him to the left.For those who always talk about "good old times", he was about 40 at the time the photo was taken. My grandfahter is the leftmost boy. The picture was taken in 1911.Mein Urgroßvater war Bäcker. Hier ist er (links) vor seiner Bäckerei zu sehen. Für die, die immer von "alten Zeiten" schwärmen: 1911 als das Foto aufgenommen wurde war er um die 40.
Christmas tree with gifts from 1950. Most likely my grandparents as my father was not a smoker and there are cigarettes (yech).
Taken in 1951 - explore this picture and find interesting things - like the sewing machine at the right, the bread box at the left back or the spice jars in the cupboard at the right. And if you are tired you can lay down on the sofa at the left.
Another one from my fathers trip to the Bodensee in 1951. Station name is Geislingen/Steige, check the map link to see where it is.

No idea what the reason for this parade was - looks like a farmers or dog owners parade. On the right my Grandparents house.
This is how it looked like when there still was a border between Austria in Germany. Here it divides one village (Grossgmain). So to visit your neighbours you had to show your passport. And now some want to re-establish borders in Europe. Do not let them do so!
Christmas shopping in 1960, location is Neustadt a.d.W. where my father worked. Photo was taken some time in December 1960.
