26 Beautiful Kodachrome Slides of West Germany Taken By a Nurse During Her Tour of Duty in the Early 1950s

These slides appear to have been taken by a US Army nurse who seems to have been attached to the 97th General Army Hospital at Frankfurt, (West) Germany in 1952 and 1953. During her tour of duty she was able, like most US service personnel, to travel in her free time to various places in Europe and Algeria (and possibly other countries in North Africa).
