Inside the Frankfurt Main Train Station in the 1950s Through Amazing Black and White Photos

Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof, often abbreviated as Frankfurt (Main) Hbf and sometimes translated as Frankfurt central station, is the busiest railway station in Hesse, Germany. It is one of the largest train stations in Europe and is located just west of the city center.

The affix “Main” comes from the city’s full name, Frankfurt am Main (“Frankfurt on the Main”). Because of its location in the middle of Germany and usage as a transport hub for long and short distance traveling, Deutsche Bahn refers to it as the most important station in Germany.

More than 350,000 travelers use this station every day. To be able to manage this great volume of traffic, the central station has more than 25 platforms in five departure halls.

These amazing black and white photos from Mark Susina were taken by his dad, when he was stationed in the U.S. Army in Germany, that show inside the Frankfurt Main Train Station in the mid-1950s.
