German Olympic Photo Card

We're taking a break from the Helm's Bakery Olympic Village boxes to bring you a picture card - not a post card - showing another aerial view of the 1932 Olympic Village. The card was printed by a German firm as part of an overall series or collection. However, the publisher is not listed on the card itself so I cannot give credit to them. Enjoy!

Card translated:

Collection Nr 6
O l y m p i c s   1 9 3 2
Picture Nr. 7          Group 22
The "Olympic Village"
In which the participants from nearly 40 nations
were housed;
for each nation was translators, separate kitchens
and cooks available for each kitchen.

Collection Nr. 6 "Olympia 1932" is published in a linenbound edition. It contains a comprehensive chronicle from well-known sports writers of the Competition of Nations in Los Angeles and the III Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid, and includes many powerful drawings and a series of full-page illustrations. Color and black-&-white pictures (picture groups 19-23) complement the Olympic book in a collection of great importance in sports history.

In the same format you will find the Olympics Games of 1936, Works 13 "Olympia 1936 - Volume 1" (picture groups 53-56) and 14 "Olympia 1936 - Volume 2" (picture groups 57-61).  Work 13 covers the IV Olympic Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Work 14 portrays the competition of the XI Olympic Games in Berlin.
