Das Auto von Heute
(Index loading in left panel
- please be patient)
This section deals with a collection of
cards that I purchased at a fleamarket several years ago. I do not speak or
write German, but have transcribed the text on the back of the cards into
the description of each page.
I would welcome more
information about these cards. Please drop me a
line (in English if possible) with any information you might have.
The cards are numbered.
I think there are 255 cards in the entire series (I don't have them all). The web
pages and images bear these numbers. Each card illustrates a German car from the
'30's. I believe the cards were made and distributed in the '30's. On the back
of each card is a brief description of the car (or other mechanical device) and ordering
instructions, presumably for an album to store the cards:
