Hitler Double???

Post by Brig » 13 Apr 2003 13:49

I picked this up at a flea market this morning. Okay, I know it's not Hitler, too chubby. Perhaps his double? Appears to be wearing trenchcoat, shirt and tie. Correct haircut and moustache. Back has address and some writing I can't make-out.

What do you guys think? Can anyone tell me anything about the double, address/company, or make out the writing?

PS-sorry about blur, I hd to enlarge the photos

Actual-sized photos from Scanner before adjustment to get rid of blur prob:

If you scan at a high resolution and save the original as Bitmap or TIFF format you can resize this and then if you Save As a version as JPEG (maybe 80% quality, 20% compression) for posting it will reduce the problem. If you scan and save as JPEG and then resize, the JPEG artefacts are resized along with the rest of the image hence they become visible.

Cheers,

It was quite common (fashionable) in the thirties for people to style themselves on Hitler...haircut and moustache, etc... similar to idol worshipping. Don't think there's anything to suggest he was a double.
