West Germany in Post-World War II: 25 Color Snapshots Capture Street Scenes of Munich in the Early 1950s

Munich is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria, on the banks of River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, and the 12th biggest city of the European Union.

The city is a major centre of art, advanced technologies, finance, publishing, culture, innovation, education, business, and tourism in Germany and Europe and enjoys a very high standard and quality of living.

To achieve as it is today, Munich was completely rebuilt following a meticulous and - by comparison to other war-ravaged German cities - rather conservative plan which preserved its pre-war street grid after American occupation in 1945.

A rare color photo set from Found Slides will give you a clearer look about West Germany in general and Munich city in particular in the early 1950s.
