The Slide Show - Traveller's Images From Germany

Here is a small selection of pictures from the recent visit to Germany made by our principals - Saul and Howard. They were the guests of Leica in Wetzlar for the opening of the optical firm's new industrial park. A good time was had by all, and there were far more pictures taken by their Leica cameras...but they asked me to select ten of the best. And a small message from Howard:


" Saul and I were fortunate enough to recently travel with Leica Australia to the new Leitz Park factory inauguration along with the Leica 100 years of photography celebrations.

Having both been to the previous factory in Solms, the amazing advancements in technology were clear to see. Leica has done a fantastic job in not only making a state of the art modern manufacturing and assembly facility , but managed to do so whilst still showing a rich heritage of product, equipment, imagery and ownership.

They are also gracious hosts and make themselves accessible to dealers, press, photographers and fans alike.

If you are travelling anywhere near Wetzlar (60km from Frankfurt) make sure to let us know and we will see if we can assist with arranging a factory visit. "


I've selected fourteen - 'cause they're actually pretty good photographers and they were there for a historic event. Ten isn't enough.


The head man from Leica with the head men from CE.


Cutting the ribbon to open the festivities.


The new display centre with the big red dot.


And a lot of people inside enjoying the display of history.


For a lot of collectors...there are a lot of Leica cameras and lenses to see.


And a lot of Leica photographs - do you recognise some of the most famous here?


Gosh - A Leica in in kit form. 38 weekly instalments at the newsagent...


The Usual Suspects.



Breakfast?


The Spot.


See? We told you.


For bridge cameras...


Last seen rolling down on Indiana Jones...
