Seems to have lots of Hoffman's postcards.
Max,
Thanks for posting those links. Those are good versions of the cards because they have the captions too. At least two haven't seen before and the others sometimes show more in frame.

(Will resume the tour of First Floor and more soon)

I received today this beautiful postcard, in best resolution than the message #21 from the friend tscamp. We can read behind "Arbeits und Empfangsraum des Führer". (Work and reception room of the leader).

Helly.

This beautiful postcard (not a photo), is an artistic work by Hugo Möhl, entitled "München Ehrentempel" (Honor Temple from Munich) exhibited at the House of German Art in Munich.
Postcard of Heinrich Hoffmann, number HDK614. In the background you can see the famous Braunes Haus.

Hi Helly,

Photo #51, Is anyone here in the forum able to somehow explain and differentiate between the flags of the NSDAP at the time, I see a few questions there for me...

How I wish someone would assemble a book of all of these photos of the Braunes Haus -- perhaps a coffee-table sized book. I'd love to have it!

I see all kinds of numbers, so I think they’re flags for local SA Stürme for Munich, no?

"I see all kinds of numbers, so I think they’re flags for local SA Stürme for Munich, no?"

That certainly makes sense, ostland; if those weren't local flags -- plus the Blood Banner, of course -- then that would mean that those flags couldn't be used by those groups for parades and other occasions. The same is true for the SA Standards displayed at the Braunes Haus, where only those Standards awarded to Munich regiments were displayed.

Hi ostland,

that is exactly the question, which flags were there..? The flags of the local SA Sturmabteilungen were certainly not there, and the flags displayed there were most certainly historically related to the early NSDAP.

The very different tips of the flagpoles speak a clear language, unique pieces that were worth being shown there.

But that's typical German bean counting, no one without the appropriate documents will be able to answer that today... :?

Dear Hans, indeed, as you point out, those flags are the first of the party after the reconstruction of 1926. They were placed there as a symbol of the early days of the Movement, since they are flags that were usually seized by the police before the seizure of power

The Hall of Flags was not actually a large room but rather a small place of honor that was located on the ground floor of the building near the entrance opposite reception. Those colors correspond to the first platoons, even there the Blood Flag was placed. The bust was of Bismarck. Every visitor to the building when entering the reception saw them.

Greetings,

A striking view, Helly -- today that view is of the Munich Documentation Center -- quite a different building, and without the columns of The Temples of Honor.
