Muetzenfabrik

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.

    The images of the old workshop under the roof are excellent photography; they have an interesting aesthetic and strange beauty to them. (Although I would not have wanted to work there, especially on a hot summer day....) Just out of curiosity: May I ask where they came from?

    Many thanks - that did it; I found the photographer's work. He's from Colditz, by the way:

    He did some fine photographs of other closed-down/abandoned sites as well; here is that specific category:

    Gebäude und Orte - Marodes von Andre´ Heidner - Fotograf aus Colditz | fotocommunity

    While I was searching for this, I also found this 4-page chronicle of the Mützenfabrik at Lunzenau (Sorry, German language only):
    http://www.lunzenau.de/pitcms/.lunze...inLunzenau.pdf

    They carried on through the post-war years (shifting their production to the Soviet Army's needs in 1945) and, with numerous changes, throughout the GDR era and finally shut down in 1995.

    HPL--what is interesting is that I have yet to see a Drittes Reich Kern visor, be in Partei, Staat, or Wehrmacht.....

    One looks also in vain for the products of many cap makers in their number. This Lubstein obsession distorts reality, in fact.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks to our friend HPL for his fine research. The transformation of society and economy remains a interesting and compelling subject in which many non Germans struggle to make sense in the central European past and present.

    But I also like his images of cute 20 something newbie East German girls playing golf, too, actually. The de industrialization of Chemnitz and its environs is part of the general transformation of the ex DDR in the past two decades, to say nothing of the creative destruction that occurred in an earlier time in the old FRG and beyond. The picture book on the collapse of Detroit from its majesty of seventy years ago is as heart breaking.

    I studied far too much social and economic history in my salad years.
    damit, basta.

    Slightly off topic, but Steinhauer & Luck did make insignia for visors.

    Here is a showroom of theirs circa 1941 (credit: Jaeger7)
