Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Wow, and there are Swastikas on the floor!
I was wondering the same thing. It looks like they are in the tile work. It was in the 1920's that the Nazis took the shape as a symbol of their movement. It was a fairly common decorative shape before that. Likely at the time this photograph was made, the shape was not widely associated with Nazis.
Yes, I think that this is the explanation. Swastikas were indeed not unknown before the raise of Nazis. I have the photograph of Jacqeline Kennedy as a kid, wearing an indians costume, decortated with a big Swastika.
. . . And I am pretty sure she was not a Nazi :)
Good Pic again. Nazi Swastikas? Cool tile work. Swastikas are neat looking, too bad there association prohibits there use. Damn Nazi's
The Swastika is still a very important symbol in hinduism. However, I think that after 1945, they've probably changed the tiles...
I like her style. ;)
