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.

Mystery marktplatz. Third Reich.

Unidentified German town. Marktplatz. 1930s.

Totally flummoxed by this one. A busy marketplace in a large town or city with 19th century buildings. German shop names and swastika banners. Any ideas?

I found it in the same collection as this one of Rothenburg, along with photos of Berlin and Potsdam, but this town does not appear to be any of those places.
