The story behind the image
Here’s an undated image of the impressive city church (Stadtkirche) of Freudenstadt in Germany. It is quite difficult to find out when this image has been taken. The clothes of the lady sitting on the bench and the stroller of the baby indicate that it was shot in the early 1940s, maybe 1942 or 1943. The church was almost completely destroyed towards the end of the war, and it got reconstructed from 1947 to 1950.
I think that the roof has been simplified upon reconstruction, as it seems to contain just one row of windows since 1950 instead of three rows of windows (on the left roof) pre-war.
Yet, I think it’s a nice image that was certainly shot by one of our ancester with a photography gene. 🙂
