    (BERLIN-DAHLEM BOTANIC GARDEN - PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM)
    Ortsverein Zehlendorf: Zur Erinnerung an die Jubiläums Gartenbau Außtellung 1911

    Zehlendorf 1911

    5 b/w photograph plates (230 x 168mm). Navy leather covered boards with silver lettering to front. Pale blue watered silk endpapers. Long 8vo. Slightly rubbed at edges, else very good. Inside pages and photographs bright and very well preserved. Souvenir photograph album from the 1911 horticultural show held in Zehlendorf, Berlin. The Berlin-Dahlem Botanical Gardens in the borough of Steglitz-Zehlendorf were built in order to present exotic plants returned from German colonies. They were completed in 1910 so this album was possibly linked to that. The photographs are of sufficient quality and detail to give an excellent overall view of the show and also to make identification of specific plants possible. There are two interior shots and three exterior. The first interior shot shows the interior hall with decoration after Peter Behrens and illustrates an indoor canalised water feature amidst lush exotic foliage. (Possibly part of the museum buildings which still survive today). Two of the exterior shots also show water features, with a more domestic scene of statues, pots and a garden bench in the third. All with buildings in the background. The final shot is an interior dining room scene showcasing flower arrangements. Horticultural exhibitions were established initially in a pioneering event at Dusseldorf in 1904 alongside the International Art and Art History exhibition held there. Their role was to train municipal staff to develop green plans to humanize the environment. These exhibition can be seen alongside other philantrhopic project including garden city plans which had the objectives of creating facilities for health and welfare for families working in the new industrial city environments.

    19th CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES OF A HOUSE INTERIOR SCHMITZ Anslem, (photographer) (1839-1903)
    Photographs of Interior of House Adolf Meyer Lowenthal's house in Cologne

    Cologne 1894

    9 sepia photographs on thin collodian paper, each measuring 380x305mm. Mounted on dark card mounts with photographer's details on verso. Mounts sl. bumped at corners. Images generally vg, though a little faded. Repairs made to the glass plate negatives have resulted in small dark blemishes on the photographs. Contained within dark green morocco folio, worn at edges, with ribbon ties and paste down label. A collection of remarkably early photographs of a townhouse in Cologne, belonging to Adolf Meyer Lowenthal and his wife. The four large images (each has multiple copies) depict a suite of interconnected rooms, including a bedroom and sitting/reception rooms. The Lowenthals were the parents of Frida (1847-1923), who married the chemist and industrialist and philanthropist Ludwig Mond in 1866 and moved to England shortly after. He set up Brunner, Mond & Co. with John Tomlinson Brunner. (Later became ICI). Frida became prominent in literary and artistic circles, and, with her husband, built a large collection of artworks and literary memorabilia. These photographs show a house full of portraits and artistic objects, no doubt contributing to her passions. These photographs, later in the possession of her son, Robert Mond, may have reminded her of their origins. They are lovely, high quality images, taken by the prolific and well known photographer Anselm Schmitz (1839-1903), most famous for his work on Cologne Cathedral and recording the city walls before they were demolished in 1883.
