Friedrichshafen Visit

by Dan Grossman on December 31, 2012

I have been intending to do a series of posts about my recent trip to Friedrichshafen but Christmas-time family events and other good things have gotten in the way. Since I am about to leave the country again (going to Cardington, England for a project about the British airship R.101) I thought I would post some photos as a short preview.

    Lovely photos, and I look forward to your upcoming additions. Also, I had no idea one could still go by sea to the UK. I’d thought trans-Atlantic ship services had gone the way of international Zeppelin services. Interesting.

    Last photo’s real caption: “winter in Europe, man… hurry up with that camera dammit!”
