Photos of german offices

Post by Lasse » 08 Mar 2011 19:24

Hello,

As I have a bit of interest in classic 1940´s and 1930´s interior design, especially offices I thought about starting a thread about the subject. Would any members please be kind and post pictures of such offices, both private and military ones, where it is possible to see what the german everyday deskclerk had on his desk? :)

Best regards,
Lars
