#288 - Selfie with Rathaus / by J.Z.

Of course, you try to stay out of the frame. But you easily get your fingers in with 15mm on a body as small as the Voigtländer Bessa-L. Finger, or more. Et voilà, selfie with the council house (Rathaus) of Kronberg.

The Rathaus (or Villa Bonn) was built in 1901-1905 as the summer residence of the Bonn family, Frankfurt bankers. Kronberg bought the house in 1922 from Emma, Max and Richard Bonn for 750,000 Mark. In the Third Reich, the nazis had their office in the building opposite the villa (where the Bonn’s trust for the elderly used to be based until the nazis took over). They killed Emma Bonn in Theresienstadt. (Source: Wikipedia)
