Anklam circa 1939


A photo taken of the 30 metre high Steintor (stone tower), the central feature of this town on the Peene River in the northeast of Germany, showing a car at the Aral service station. According to a survey by the NZ Motor Trades Association at that time, Germany had the world's highest petrol prices.

A roughly equivalent view today on Google Earth.
