    Default My estate sale find today

    I found a WWII gi photo album today,the pages were rotting away and I have spent all afternoon peeling photos from crumbling black album paper.I am going to post a series of snaps this fellow took May 1945 to Aug 1945.The photo I am sending was included in the bunch but I doubt a GI took it,I think it was taken by someone in attendance to this meeting. There is a sign on the building that I can not translate. Very interesting. The note on the back of the photo says ''A photo of Adolf Hitler'' but it looks to me it was developed in Germany. What do you all think?

    This next photos show a group of GI leaving Munich,On the back it says 3rd Army Airport Sept.3 Munich "you will find me about 3rd from right waiting for a c-47 to London.It amazing to me how much history is just laying about waiting to be picked up like so many golden nuggets.I wonder how much stuff is just tossed in the ash bin.

    Operaman, The first pic does look like Hitler standing in the car. Have never seen this shot before. Enlarge the pic, I'd say 95% sure its him. Nice pick up. John

    As John said. I never find pictures, but everything else. And I never find things at estate sales. Only furniture and old work out machines. Can I come live by you?

    The person standing up in the first staff car to the left, nearest the building, does look like it could be Hitler.
