    Hi All -

    Just got this really interesting photo of Reichspräsident von Hindenburg at the "Tag von Potsdam" (March 21st, 1933) as he is arriving (shortly after this, he shoke hands with Adolf Hitler, where the iconic photo was taken of this handshake.)

    Here is the "before" photo, looks to be original (I hope!) - not sure if a rare picture - but sure is very interesting for me:

    ...and here is that iconic handshake photo (from the internet):

    Now I was really interested if this "before" photo was also on film archives - and thankfully it is!
    See these screen-shots of Hindenburg arriving with car and bodyguards, as one of them is taking his staff - the exact moment of the before photo can be seen on the third shot:

    So anyone who snapped this photo, was standing on the stairs, right front of Hindenburg.

    History from another point of view.

    PS: I'll probably will frame this "before" photo (make a photo display) with these reprint photos side-by-side:
