series of 1926,card sent Jan.14th,1928
The first "Bild-Postkarte" -series of Germany was issued in 1926.
"Bild-Postkarten" were popular in Germany,Austria and Switzerland.
Several thousands different were issued over the years.
By the way this card shows Schweinfurt.This city was the most
intensively bombed place in Germany during WW II.
In Schweinfurt Fichtel & Sachs were located,specialized in the
production of ball-bearings.Without them you cannot build
any machines,cannons,air-planes,ships,or you name it.
So the allied idea was to wipe out that industry.
But they didn´t succeed.The production ran hardly hampered
at all till the end of the war.However the civilian parts of the city were nearly destroyed one hundred percent.
