|My father and mother|
Together with my mother he visited the German city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber on July 26, 1939. There they bought a number of picture postcards. Later he used some of those as an example for his pen drawings. I am glad my mother loved keeping all those travel memorabilia. It is nice to still have those and it enables us to compare the postcards with my father's drawings. So you'll find those below. Also a third illustration which is a Google view of the situation now.
