Emil Loeb Store, circa 1920-circa 1935
Photographs show Emil Loeb's store in Darmstadt, Germany. The photos are not of the same storefront. The smaller photograph shows the outside of a storefront with a young man standing in the doorway, and two identical signs on the storefront itself. The signs read "Kurz - Weiss - Woll - & Strumpfwaren" on top and "Garne en gros - Emil Loeb - Trikotagen En gros". This roughly translates to "Course - White - Wool - & Hoisery" and "Yarn Wholesale (in large amounts) - Emil Loeb - Cotton Jersey Wholesale (in large amounts)". The larget photograph shows a larger building with "Emil Loeb" on the second level. Beneath this is a sign that reads "Emil Loeb Gross: Handlung Kurz & Wollwaren, Trikotagen, Garne" which roughly translates to "Emil Loeb Wholesale (large amounts): Course and Woolware, Cotton Jersey and Yarn". The first level of the building says "Betten-Special-Haus" [beds-special-house] and "M. Burhdahl." which was probably a separate business on the first level of the building. This photograph can be seen framed in the postcard picture of Emil Loeb (B407.01.0001.0008.00002).
