GERMANY to SOUTH AMERICA TRIPS 1923-1932 PHOTO ALBUM

Contains around 258 black and white photos depicting a group of friends and their traveling adventures from around 1923 to 1932. The group appear to be from Germany based on the language used in the handwritten captions accompanying the photographs and the names of the ships on which they traveled, which included the Norddeutscher Lloyd out of Bremen and the General Osario out of Hamburg. Locations visited include Vigo, Spain and the Golf von Biskaya, Lisbon, Madeira, etc, with many from different trips to Buenos Aires, Argentina and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There are color postcards with illustrations of both mentioned ships, and many photos depict groups of people on the ships. There are also plenty of photos of port cities, street scenes, and the nature and architecture of the places visited. There is also a photo from 1926 of the Plus Ultra aircraft, which completed the first transatlantic flight between Spain and South America.[source] Photographs measure between 1.75 x 2.75 and 8.75 x 6.5” and are glued to the pages, accompanied by handwritten annotations identifying place and year. There appear to be around 3 photos missing.
