Wonderful Life of Austria and Italy in the Late 1950s Through Imptessive Black and White Photos

An impressive collection of black and white photos from Hedwig Schönberger that shows daily life of Vienna (Austria), Rimini and Venice (Italy) in the late 1950s.
“This account is dedicated to my mother, who died in 2000, whose estate I am currently working on. The photos shown were taken between 1957 and 1970. The estate consists of about 70 films (4.5 X 6), she made with her Zeiss Ikonta during some holiday trips and walks in Vienna. I also use this camera occasionally today. There are also some 6X6 movies that she exposed with a borrowed Rolleiflex-T. A friend succeeded in getting her interested in photography in the mid-fifties. From him, she also received the technical Know-how, how to develop films and paper prints themselves.”
