A MAN AND TWO WOMEN POSE AS HIKERS IN BAD REICHENHALL, GERMANY

This private real photo postcard features a handsome man and two women holding walking sticks. The studio backdrop shows mountains which fits the idea that this adventurous group is planning, or a least feigning, that they are about to go for a hike. Note the contrast between the two women in this photograph. The woman wearing the dark dress is gazing downward and her eyes are only half open. She seems shy and withdrawn. In comparison, the young woman in the white skirt is looking at the camera with confidence. She is gazing upward and not camera-shy. Printing on the reverse of this postcard provides information about the photographer. I have difficulty interpreting the information. I do not know the exact meaning of  “Hotphotograph Fritz”. I assume that the phrase “Hotphotograph Fritz” is the name of the studio. The photo studio was located in Bad Reichenhall, Germany. Bad Reichenhall is a “spa town” in Upper Bavaria, Germany and is located near Salzburg. The town in encircled by the Chiemgau Alps. This photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. I think it’s “Hofphotograph,” which Google translates as “court photographer.”
