For discussion a nice period picture from Berlin 1933

The text on the wall behind :
Complete uniforms Flaggs
Equipment Books, Notebooks
SA, SS,HJ Photo's
Political leader Gramaphon records
B.d.M Silver
Deutsches Jungvolk (Youth) Gold
Leather goods

Right under the eagle’s wing is written:
Berlin HN, Kopenhagenerstr. 75
From 15 April 33, Kopenhagenerstr. 9


Willy Krause , probably the man who sold it for the NSDAP- SA, I presume.
Willij, as it is written there, with 2 dots on , will be not correct?

Citation:
*The picure is from the book “Hitler 1889-1945 . A tiran in word and picture .
Autors: Dr. Hendrik van Capelle and Arie Pieter van de Bovenkamp.

The text under the picture,
SA-lokaalin Berlijn, waar allerhande nazi atibuten kunnen worden gekocht.
translated: SA room in Berlin, where all kind of Nazi-attributes can be bought.

Picture from The National Archives.

Benten,,
What a wonderful wonderful photo.! Thanks for posting.. And,, thanks for translation and for giving proper photo credits!

Yes, this is one of the ways you got your rings back then.. This was the place to get your SS or SA ring! They might have even had a book you could look thru and pick out what they did not have in stock there..

I'd say easily by mid war shops like this were kaput... Organizational rings were not really around after 1934/36! Even 'patriotic' rings [Swastika] were hard to find..

SS, SA , Organizational, patriotic, political, are always a rarer ring... Skulls, Luft.,WestWalls, other, etc. became the norm....

Thank you all for your reply.

Look at the symmetrie of the shop;
AH portrait, large Swastika, and Eagle-pigeon, I agree smile ; all in the centre
Paintings, identical Swastikas: one left and one right

The symmetrie of the photo itselves ...
Client in the centrre , posing / buying a necklace
The Sa-men: one left and one right

All very ordered.

Definitely a bite out of time. Could that be a display of postcards or photos to the right (facing) near the bicycles?
Do I see a fire police helmet with the aluminum comb near the center or is that something else?
