Photographs I've gleaned from flea markets, junk shops and sometimes ebay. The cheaper the better. Anything with a story that can be extracted from hand written notes, location research, local histories, census records......anything. A small band of fellow enthusiasts worldwide have helped me with many of these. Of course there are always mysteries that defy research, but there's even a story inside these. All images can be viewed at super-size on Flickr.

Jägerstraße, Potsdam, Germany. 1930s or 1940s.

Jägerstraße, Potsdam, Germany. 1930s or 1940s.

That's a 'Blitz' lorry and there appears to be a soldier in WW2 era uniform. This location took a quite a bit of educated guesswork to pin down. A fellow vintage photo enthusiast in Germany finally dispelled all doubt by visiting this street yesterday and taking this photo for me.
