Here are some real old ones
Lens: Elmar 3.5 50mm Camera: Leica llF Photo Location: Germany 
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 6 Days Ago

A couple of years ago I started digitizing my old slides and negatives and I'm still at it. Here are a few samples, they are from the small village in Germany where I was borne and grew up in.

















Comments are always welcome and appreciated

Thank you for posting these. They are a great glimpse into the past. I am guessing this was a dairying area? It looks like cream cans waiting to be picked up in the second shot (on the left).

Not exactly sharp, but very contrasty.
I like the pictures.

Thank you and you are welcome. Most farmers had some Milk Cows, it was all around general forming but the main crop was (and still is) Sugar Beets. All the small farms are gone now, bought up by large farm corporations

Thank you, keep in mind that those images are from 66 years old 35 mm negatives.

Nice countryside photos of Germany. I particularly like the forest scenes.

I note that you have some of the exact same camera equipment that I have, a Leica Rangefinder 11F with a Leitz Elmar 50mm F 3.5 collapsible lens. I have had mine since 1981 and although the body was not in perfect cosmetic condition when I bought it (small dent in top), it has been a wonderful, top quality camera and lens for me all these years. As you know loading a film can be 'different' requiring the use of scissors.

Very nice to see photos from the Leica screw mount rangefinder.

You mention that Molzen was where you were born, have you had the opportunity in the past to visit this area again ?

Thank you very kindly. My Leica is long gone, I bought it new in 1954 and sold tt in 1958. We came to Canada in 1955 and I went back for a Visit in 2013. If you are interested here is the link to the photos from that trip: Germany trip 2013 Photo Gallery by Heinrich Lohmann at pbase.com

Thank you for posting the link. I enjoyed looking at the trip photos. A lovely locale, judging by the photos. I'm sure you saw many changes, between 1955 and your visit back in 2013.

BTW, I still have my old Leica. My intention before I bought it, was to get a used M3 and a moderate wide angle or normal (50mm) lens. The M3's in the shop were over my budget, so I bought the 11F and have never been disappointed in all the years I have had it and photographed with it.
