Donald Watters (Germany) Photographs

HI All. Here some pictures taken at the weekend in Dresden, look at the last two, they could have been taken in Lisburn of the Town clock. Pictures 2,3 and 4 are of the newly rebuilt church of the Holy Mother which was totally destroyed in 1945 by the allied forces and rebuilt by subscriptions from all over the world. Britain presented the dome which was made by an English goldsmith whose father was one of the pilots who dropped the bombs. Donald

After reading Ann and Jimmy's comments about the Agfa film I thought these  photos might interest some of our forum readers. I was present on Sunday 17.Feb 2008 when the old Agfa Laboratory in Munich was demolished . 18 stories high, it took 120 kilos of explosives to bring it down. Donald

Hello Jim Here are a few photos from Munich, the first 3 are from Nymphenburg Palace where Queen Elisabeth stays when she is in Munich, the rest are from the Oktoberfest. The church in the background from Nr 6 is where the plane which was taking home American students from the University of Maryland for Xmas in the 1950s lost it's bearings in fog and flew into the spire, crashing on top of a tram with a lot of lives being lost.
