An attractive couple make a birthday toast at a table in Luckenwalde, Germany. It is also possible that rather than a birthday, the pair may be sharing New Years Eve. Nevertheless, they are toasting with glasses of beer. Note the couple’s party hats and the streamers hanging from the ceiling. An ashtray with cigarette butts sits on the middle of the table. Perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this photograph is the young woman’s expression as she looks at the young man. Her eyes certainly speak, and they appear to be shouting words of love (or perhaps lust). An inscription on the reverse of the photograph indicates that the fellow in the photograph is named “Martin Hagen” and the picture was taken in 1958. The photo measures 4″ x 2 3/4″.

  1. What a fun, festive photo! By the way, “bei” means “at”, in the sense of being at somebody’s home. So I believe the inscription means that the party is taking place at Martin Hagen’s home, rather than that he’s necessarily the person pictured, though it certainly could be him.
