Meet Karl

Karl is my great gandfather on my mothers side and I have quite a collection of pictures of him. Thatswhy he gets his own post.


With my great grandmother on the left.


I posted this one before, but I like it so much. The hats!
Great grandma on the left again.

From 1937 on he owned the pub/restaurant "Zum goldenen Anker"
(Anchors, yay!) in the harbour of Stralsund.


"Fuggers pineapples" ad in the background



This picture must have been taken after
he was recruited. I´ve got another photo
of him in that outfit with two soldiers by
his side.



Karl was killed in action in February 1945 near Cologne at the age of 39.
