Great photo album bearing 144 original photographs from attendees of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, bearing numerous images of the packed stadium and its surrounding areas, two images of the 'Hindenberg' flying over the city, an image of the tourists in front of the Brandenberg Gate, and many more relevant photographs. The last three pages bear two affixed tickets to the Olympic stadium, as well as various entrance passes to other tourist destinations, two being printed in Czech and one oddly printed in Japanese kanji. The album also documents many other stops on the tourists' cruise - likely as part of Germany's 'Strength Through Joy' program - including an original photograph of the 'Admiral Graf Spee' and many other routine photographs. The pages are remarkably well-labelled and sometimes well-illustrated, including a sketch of the Brandenberg Gate with the Olympics rings at center, an image of the bell-shaped emblem of the event, and a drawing of the island of 'Helgoland'. The album itself bears red leather boards, with a front cover bearing the Olympic rings above the impressed gilt lettering 'Olympiade 1936 Berlin.' Near fine condition, with seemingly no photographs lost or removed.
