Color Photos of Bacharach, Germany in 1924/1928 – Archives of the Planet

Archives of the Planet Collection #6


In 1924 and 1928, photographer Frédéric Gadmer and Roger Dumas, who worked for the project “Archives of the Planet” (French: Les Archives de la Planète), visited the small German town of Bacharach and captured alluring color photos of the country. 

Archives of the Planet was a project initiated by Albert Kahn, a French banker and philanthropist, and it aimed to create “a kind of photographic inventory of the surface of the earth, as it was occupied and organized by men at the beginning of the 20th century.” We may consider it to be an oldschool Google Maps.

Disclaimer: The photos belong to the archives of “Musée Albert-Khan – Département des Hauts-de-Seine”
