Germany / Deutschland, 1990

More digitized slides from my parents' adventures in Germany. On October 3, 1990, the Day of German Unity / Tag der Deutschen Einheit (reunification of East and West Germany)the international Photokina began another of its bi-annual trade fairs in Köln / Cologne. These shots are from this trip, taken around Cologne and elsewhere in Germany. The picture above is spectacular when enlarged to a massive scale. 
Photo-related advertisements - pre-digital age. 
Big pretzels (Die Brezel)!
Riparian mystery reminiscent of a Bruegel painting. People painting murals on open sections of wall?  Strange days in Germany.

Now those are some serious pretzels.
