hello, have you ever tried to build a chair like the one on the terrace of the Berghof? I would like to try to build it. If it works, I will build several chairs and then sell them. :D
Hello G.K.

This sounds good ... try to build them, make a copyright for the design and sell it to IKEA ... I bet people will love it, till the moment IKEA realizes what kind of chair they are selling 😜

Serious: Please tell us the moment you finished your chairs, I'm realy looking forward to see them.

👍👍👍

Geoff this is for you in case you are keeping track of these people.

You may remember some time ago I found Richard F. Reiter from Berchtesgaden
living in Canada.

Sorry to say I just now found his obituary.
He certainly had an interesting life and moved a lot.

REITER: Richard Frederick of Penetanguishene, ON, Formerly of Victoria, BC


Sadly, we announce the passing of Mr. Richard Frederick Reiter. Richard passed away peacefully in the early evening of Wednesday March 8th, 2017 at Georgian Bay General Hospital in Midland, Ontario. Richard was born on April 22, 1928 in Berchtesgaden, Germany to parents Karl and Josefine Reiter. Richard is predeceased by his loving wife Joan […]
Found this letter he wrote....just a side bit about the person.

Immigration brought strength to Canada

Re: "Immigrants should pay full costs," July 31.

I came to Canada in 1951 as an immigrant. I did not pay one penny for processing my application for a visa. The government of Canada had sent recruiters to Europe to encourage people to apply.

Moreover, Canada paid for my travel and I promised to repay the amount in monthly instalments of $10. (I repaid the loan in six months.)

I started a full-time job the day I arrived - front-desk clerk at the Royal York Hotel. I worked from 6 p.m. until 6 a.m. I attended classes in language and history during the day. I continued my education, qualified as a teacher, and was appointed head of history and geography in our school when I was 40 years old.

As well, I started buying up hotels and resorts, being able to rely on my family workforce.

I am one of the millions of immigrants who have helped to contribute to the growth of this wonderful country. I hope that Canada's opposition parties can dig up leaders before the next election of the quality of Lester Pearson, Wilfrid Laurier, Tommy Douglas, David Lewis or even John Diefenbaker.

This country possesses everything that is needed to make this happen, including a vibrant growing population, thanks to our government's foresight in making immigration easy.
