We were living in Oberursel, W. Germany, when it actually became Oberursel, Germany and the streets filled with Trabats, which went at about the speed of a lawnmower. It was quite an experience. One day we took a short trip to the closest picturesque town over the former border. This is Jenni posing in front of a rather opulent building. What the photo does not show is that the town was literally frozen in time. The display windows of the stores looked like they would have in the fifties.....a wide window sill with items arranged along the surface. No neon, no flasing signs, no modernity. Very peaceful, actually.
