Hermann Hoyer: Hamburg und seine Strassenbahn (EJ)

1 In Stock

Hermann Hoyer was a railway and tramway enthusiast from Hamburg who built up a vast photographic archive of the city’s tramway network from the 1950s to the 1970s. His photographs include many lively street scenes and images from all around the city.

From Hermann’s unique collection, Stefan Carstens has put together this book illustrating the economic miracle in Hamburg, in the context of the city’s transport networks. As well as depicting all manner of different tram types, Hermann Hoyer: Hamburg und seine Strassenbahn also shows how the post-war city of Hamburg looked at the time. Many locations from yesteryear can still be found today.
