Title

Vohwinkel

Description

A vertical aerial photograph of Vohwinkel, near Wuppertal, orientated so that the top edge is roughly south. The multi-track railway is obvious and runs from the lower left corner to a large marshalling yard at the mid-right edge. A branch line joins the main line in the lower left corner. The lower right quarter shows open countryside, large swathes of forest and some evidence of open cast mining or quarrying. The town of Vohwinkel is bounded by the railway and a major road that runs from the lower left up towards the top of the photograph. Smoke from exploding bombs can be seen in the upper half of the image.

The photograph is captioned:
'1772 SDL 31.12.44 // 7" 20000 110 1444 VOHWINKEL M
I HC4000IN 14MC500DT C37 F.L. POWELL W186'.

On the reverse is written ‘AP’ in large letters and ‘350x 180°'.
