This posting is part of one substantially larger, originally posted in April 2010, but, as it was too big, it presented me with several editing problems that I was unable to resolve. The original has been deleted. I am now reposting it in several parts.

Those are some neat pics! I can't believe how humanity has transformed with technology in the last 100 years!

Enjoy visiting this page once in a while and listen to the music: Krafwerk and the German cabaret piece. Like your style and approach to the human condition. Thank you for sharing yourself.

Thank you very much. Now I know who is pictured on this photograph. I am documenting and digitalize the bequest of Julius Groß in the Archiv der deutschen Jugendbewegung (Archive of the German Youth Movement). Our Archive is situated on a Castle called Ludwigstein. This photo was actually taken in Freusburg near Sieg, not in Hamburg. Its Archive Number is F1 477/198. In this photographic series of this meeting there are a few more pictures with the both of them.
We would like you to acknowledge that our institution is the copyright owner. But more importantly we ask you if you have more documents, letters etc. of your grandparents that you would like to share.

Danke Carolin. I apologize that you had to wait almost two years until I made corrections to the photo caption and acknowledged the correct copyright.
