Frankfurt, Germany - Photos 1959-61



If you haven't already seen it, first CLICK HERE to see the FHS site I made a couple years ago from my own photos.

A collection of 23 color slides taken by my father between February 1959 and June 1961, which I came by recently (June 2005). Just buildings and street scenes, no people. Each slide was scanned at 1000 dpi, producing a jpg image about 1MB in size, and then reduced to approximately browser width at lower resolution, about 80-90K each. The smaller images are shown in the following pages. If you click on an image you get the full-size one. They are in no particular order. And they're a bit faded – what do you expect! Some day when I have time I'll integrate these with my original Frankfurt site.

Me in 1959.  No, it's Brad Pitt!  No, it's me!
