Warships of ww1
« on: March 10, 2010, 02:33:12 PM »
Another hobby of me is collecting historical postcards and photos of warships of the imperial german navy (mainly Dreadnoughts and Battlecruisers)!
Anyone here interested in this things too? ;)

This is the 40.000-tons-dock of the imperial navy dockyard in Kiel.
The ship is the first german battlecruiser, S.M.S. Von der Tann, launched 1909.

From this dock i have 6 or 8 pictures with different ships.

Like it! As I don't have Imperial Germany photos but only AEF. Thank God another person who is saving these items from the past as photos are usually the first things to go!
