Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    Those blue and yellow signs were ubiquitous at my first school. Of course, by that time they were merely relics. I recall the classroom maps showed a pre-91 eastern bloc as surviving. It was a lower income school that was often overlooked.
    Even 1989 is now more than past swept up in memory, tradition and history, to say nothing of 1958 or 1938.
    My first school years were highly atomic and thermonuclear, that is for sure.
    It all seems impossibly remote, odd, even quaint.Click image for larger version.

    Eastern Europe is a place that has never moved in physical space, but its place in political geography shifts as western Europe or central Europe define or redefine themselves. That is, why Prague is eastern Europe, when it is west of Vienna?Name:  220px-GengouvduPrel.jpg

    The above has nothing to do with cap makers, per se, but with the political forces that made the need for caps so great.Name:  2459h.jpg

    If you look under the heading of Muetzenmacher in Google books some nice things might well intrigue you as they emerge. There is a German analysis of hat making in Philadelphia and New York in the 1860s, whereby the fact leaps up that the city of New York at that time had no more than five thousand (5,000) hat makers, many of whom worked with sewing machines.Name:  books.jpg

    If such a city as New York had this many hat makers in the middle of the 19th century on a semi mechanized basis, then how many could have had Berlin in the 1920s and 1930s about which the average cap collector who relies on a pretty shaky basis really know about this subject?Click image for larger version.

    Donnerwetter. Very interesting. Next time I have a long lay over at FRA on the way to the theater, I shall go have a look. Maybe I should get into the cap making business with my book and my few prototypes. I might even finance my social security and medicare that are on the chopping block.

    They sell this thingy, which I have an old one, but this one is more practical. It is to measure the size of a cap, which has its merits.Name:  0563-400.jpg

    Interesting site:
    Quite amazing Chris! I'm sure many interesting facts could be obtained from looking through the company's books!

    I have a feeling they are supplying Janke and the guy who now holds the Erel trademark. I wouldn't mind buying that measuring device myself (it is a pain in the a__ trying to use a measuring tape!)

    Here is a wartime stamp of theirs:
