From Mr.Waterslide's photo stream

Yes. I'll admit it...I'm a nostalgic person.
And one of the great things about photography is that so far it's the only kind of time machine available to us. When you look at a photograph like the above, you're in the past. But only to look at its shadows, from a distance and through a tiny, time-frozen window...but those people were there, on that street, on that day.

A bit like looking at the stars through a telescope, I suppose.

Panzer: Kfz 13 "Adler"
One of the earliest additions to the newly formed Panzerwaffe was the Kfz 13 armoured scout car carrying an MG 34. Of note is the licence plate with the old Reichswehr prefix "RW"
