Scanning old Christmas Photos

6 Dec

Some Diary notes:
As usual I am running out of time on the computer. Just now I have been scanning some old photos. I’ll try to insert them before I get ready for our day at Bulli Beach.

First here is a picture from around 1900 that shows a “WEIHNACHTSMARKT” in Berlin. I came across this picture only yesterday and I think it has historical value.

Yesterday, on the 5th of December, was Monika’s birthday. Here is a picture of Monika that was taken on the 5th of December 1959:

I had to put the top half of this post in draft. We did go to Bulli Beach Cafe for lunch. All in all we spent more then three hours at the cafe and at the beach. Everyone had a good time. The weather was perfect for a day at the beach. Today’s pictures I am going to publish some other time. Today I want to conclude this post with more of the scanned Christmas pictures from years past.

Here I am with Monika at Fairy Meadow Beach.

    Auf der historischen Postkarte sieht man den Berliner Dom, der zwischen 1894 und 1905 am Lustgarten erreichtet wurde. Also wird die Karte von der Zeit kurz nach seiner Fertigstellung sein. Schön, dass Du sie zeigst.
