Pictured are an original photo and glass negative of Hitler with Mussolini at the Reich's Chancellery in Sept/1937. Plus several other "somewhat famous folks in the company". The photo was attributed to Hoffman for his photo book "Mussolini Erlebt Deutschland" / Mussolini Experiences Germany. Story line is Hitler did not like his pose, therefore, this photo was not used. There is a similar photo that was used in several books. This photo does not have Hoffman's imprint. The photo is printed on Agfa - Lupex paper. The negative is on thick period glass. I guess the glass negative was made so they could mass produce pictures for magzines, newspapers etc. I was shocked to find out that Mussolini was fluent in German, and gave a speech at the olympic stadium, and on German radio. He toured Germany and while there made the famous statement, "When one has such a friend "Hitler". You go with him through thick and thin, in good times and in bad. I really liked the picture even if it was a reject. I was confused by Keitel's rank in the picture. He made full General in 1937, but I do not know what month.
