Interesting locations, e.g. threads, on the images of items where they are signed E. Leitz Wetzlar.
Thanks for sharing
Tom

Great stuff, while I was temporarily stationed in Nicaragua; the mission there had stuff like some of the above. It was property of the U.S. Army. I asked about it and they said it hadn't been used for years. Wonder who finally declared it junk and took it home with them.

Hi Mr. Lager,

I have all these images and more in your excellent book "Leica Literature 1930-1960".

It is a 1980 copy signed by yourself that I acquired on the Internet. It's a great addition to my small but growing Leica library. Invaluable, really. Thank you again, sir!

Sincerely,

Steve in New Mexico

Greetings Steve, Thank you for your kind comments about my 1980 book on literature. I am always interested in any literature on the Leica. There are , of course, examples not in the English language. Best wishes, Jim Lager.
