Fifties 4: occupied Germany



Until 1955 Germany was occupied - and that is clearly visible on the mini-REX II meter, or the Enna München Sandmar. Strangely enough there's nothing on the Paxette, except the scale in feet, not in meters.
After 1955 there were still severe import restrictions, in England, for Zeiss Ikon cameras. Difficult times (half my family is German) for everyone.

The Rex still works perfectly; the 100mm Sandmar shows a modern digital problem: heavy vignetting, and the RolleiRockhard80 I had in my Argus today didn't help.
