Städtischer Nahverkehr in der DDR – einzigartige Momentaufnahmen von Peter Dönges

This comprehensive book includes more than 1600 black and white photos of public transport operators in the former DDR. Almost all were taken by the well-known transport expert and photographer Peter Dönges between the mid-1950s and 1981. Around half of the pictures are from Saxony, and the diversity of vehicles shown is really remarkable. There are also included photos of different trolleybus and motorbus models as well as a number of bus trailers, sometimes pre-war, which all served the DDR cities at that time. Recomendable!
