Hamburgers ahoy!

What it is:

Real photo post card measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches.

What I know about it:

Photographer is Max Struve of Hamburg, Germany.  Otherwise undated and unidentified.


Sorry, I couldn’t resist the title.  It refers, of course, to the fact that these folks are from Hamburg, Germany.  (Any other interpretation is your business.)  Given that I have a number of photos of families on boats, I’ll admit it took a second glance before I realized this “boat” is just a painted studio backdrop.  Nicely done, I say.  I’m operating under the assumption that this is a father, mother and daughter, though, as always, without identification I can’t know for sure.  Also, though I’m not 100% certain, I believe this is the same man I previously posted here.

  1. Such a well executed backdrop compared to many.

  2. And if they were from Berlin, you could say “Ich bin ein Berliner” 😉

  3. I’m sure it’s the same guy–as well as the same outfit, down to the stickpin. Maybe these were taken the same day?

    • Yeah, I wasn’t 100% sure, but I was probably about 97% sure. 🙂 Could well be the same day. I think I have other pictures of him that I’ll have to post, too.

  4. I had a guest from Hamburg once, and he delighted in introducing himself to Americans as a “genuine Hamburger,” so your pun is in-bounds.
