    My favorite so far in terms of clarity of the details has got to be this one:
    Photoausstellung Maurer
    Another good headgear study:

    ....And those have me puzzled:

    Blank black collar patches and a breast eagle over his left pocket... What is he?

    Here is an interesting oddity, a Wehrmacht NCO wearing an officer-style white tunic with collar braid:

    (Images are flipped.)

    Also of interest; a Wehrmacht enlisted man wearing a Waffenrock converted according to wartime regulations:

    Isn't the flip due to the way it was taken from a negative?

    did a flip of it in gimp and it looks okay now ?

    No, the three images of the "mystery man" were actually NOT flipped.
    Please look at the way his tunic is buttoned.

    teach me to pay attention....if it was a snake it would have bit me....


    is the breast eagle even there or is it just the "non faded" area behind it after it was removed ?

    I was wondering about that, too, but I think the eagle is still there. In this photo particularly, its right edge appears somewhat "raised" over the tunic's surface:

    I guess the fact that no details within the eagle's outlines are visible is probably due to the light and/or fading of the insignia. I could be wrong, though.

    looks/reminds me of the "felt" the Army Air Corps pilots put behind bullion wings...or at least looks like it is raised a bit...
    cropped it in gimp and sized it up

    Your powers of keen observation are not limited to the craftsmanship of caps, to be sure.

    The description in German from Passau included by our good HPL Kollege on details of the owner of the Fotoatelier and her family is especially interesting, really. Her family was in the wine retail trade (as was my family in the Rheinland of another time...) a prosperous undertaking, which allowed her sisters and her to engage in the arts and trades, and to open said Fotoatelier in the middle of Passau, where they were adjacent to the Cathedral and also lure in customers from the Danubian traffic, i.e. the Upper Austrians from nearby. Attachment: Passau as it looks today. It stands at the confluence of three rivers, the major ones being the Danube and Inn.

    This is all so much more interesting than so much of what gets batted about here, thank God.
