Rhine Tour, 1930’s: The Lorelei Rock

This time we see the massive rock along the Rhine known as the Lorelei.

The legend on the back is from a German poem, translated crudely as follows:

The Lorelei

The Lorelei waved from fading Stone,

Performance floods down her veil

And contributes to the listening land into

The gold melting blood of her songs.

She has sung in my lonely hour

Of home and hope and love;

There the words out of her mouth

Remain forever in our hearts.

— From the epic “Trutz Katz” by Jorg Ritzel
