There are pages and pages of great photos, even color ones! Alas, I have no scanner and can not share them. As far as the television stuff goes, there is only one photo of the outside front of the post office, not of people using the device inside. (Isn't that a shame?) The P.O. has a big sign that says, "FERN * SEH * SPRECH * STELLE."

The photo's caption says:
"LONG-DISTANCE SEEING AND TALKING OFFICE," READS THIS SIGN.
In a branch post office near the Zoo, the city has installed its first commercial television station. For about 60 cents you may call up a friend in Leipzig for a "long-distance see-speak."


The issue is from Feburary 1937. The author of the article travelled to Germany over the summer for the Olympic Games.

An agit-prop post from Cantankerous, which added nothing to the discussion, was removed
