Today an Europeanized car, dressed in Erdmann & Rossi-made suit with Landau bars. According to its license plates the car was located in Berlin.
It could well be that this 1938 (?) Packard is furnished with the "chromium-plated grille surround", known from -> a car, today located in Russia.

That's when they had the Reich's Mark, instead of the Deutsche Mark. When did they change to DM Guscha?

BDC, good eye!

...When did they change to DM Guscha?


"The Reichsmark . . . was the currency in Germany from 1924 until 20 June 1948 in West Germany, where it was replaced with the Deutsche Mark, and until 23 June in East Germany when it was replaced by the East German mark." [source: Wikipedia]


Another postcard from Berlin that shows a Packard (below) "with references of the highest lords".

To me it looks as if the one or another post lost content or parts of its content, when PackardInfo moved to another base.

See missing comment above or
-> here and
-> there and
-> over there,
-> next in line and so
-> on and
-> on.
Moreover the images lost their captions.

To come up to the headline of this thread -> this link will bring you far away from home.
