Panzer - Allied bombings did a lot to disrupt Germany's tank production in the last two years of ww2. The production of small arms, and even fighter planes and V2 rockets could be moved to small workshops which the bombers couldn't spot, but the production pf panzers demanded heavy machinery which could not be moved that easily. In this photo, taken after the war ended, the hull of an unfinished King Tiger stands in the rubble of the Henschel factory in Kassel.

Babe - Many of these ole-tyme photos make good use of the viewers imagination which I prefer compared to today’s gynaecology lessons.
