Not sure if this particular portrait has been posted before, but it is one of my favourites of Ley. Produced as a postcard, a superb studio image. Hope you like it.

Great photos....Hitler called Ley "my greatest idealist"...Ley tried to create heaven on earth for the working class and he genuinely seemed to care about them through his "Strength Through Joy" program...his personal life was unhappy due to his alcoholism and he made some pretty vicious speeches against the Jews. For a Nazi Leader, I find Dr. Ley's life less offensive than others such as Himmler or Goebbels. Actually, I rather like the man based on his better record as written by his biographer Smelser.. He was a sick man in his mind and body (his WWI head wound, his alcoholism) and much of his thinking entered the realm of fantasy. Source" Ronald Smelser: "Robert Ley: Hitler's Labor Front Leader".

Apologies for the quality of my photos..but two interesting ones of Ley.
These from the 194 Hoffman book of him during The Great War.
