I acquired this nice and rare photo album with original photographs from a rally in Nuremberg during September 1937. There are familiar faces such as Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, Rudolf Hess and Herman Goring. There are over 100 photos in the album so I'd thought I would share a few.

Please note that I am not promoting any ideology here and know that I am just a WWII history collector. Keep the political aspects out it as I thought it would be nice to show some original photographs from an important period in history. Thanks.

Is the photographer's name mentioned?
Whoever took the pics had to have had top security clearance.
Historic photos, for sure.
Don.......

Unfortunately I do not know who took the photos. The name was lost over the years or never disclosed to begin with. That's a shame though because it would have been nice information to have. Plus you are right, whoever took the photos must have had the highest security clearance. I'm sure very few folks were allowed to take close up and personal photos such as these.

Awesome photos, so is it put-together like a home-made scrap book or are all the photo sizes and qualities the same, like for a mass produced souvenir photo book? I'd be interested in seeing more photos from the book.

Nice Historic WWII photo's. Thanks for sharing them with us. There are an awful lot of folks in our country with messed up ideas and idealogy. They should spend more time studying our past American History and what it took in all our past wars to give them "Their Rights" that they are so quick to tell folks about. JMHO

From all indications, I believe it is put together like a home made scrap book. All the photos are the same size albeit some are vertical while others are horizontal. Plus some of the pages are dated and some even state who the person is or what event is occurring. It is written in a paint marker of some sort. I have a couple of loops where I can zoom in quite nicely and it is obvious that the writing was not mass produced. Everything is hand written. At least those are my observations & thoughts once again.

I'm glad you like the photos. I have included more down below.

Agreed. Many folks are ignorant when it comes to history and/or just don't care.

Wow cool find. Being a military history nut I understand the value and need to preserve items like this. In doing so it doesn't make us closet Nazis or such.

Thank you for sharing this nice assortment of pictures.
