Stuttgart's logo

Stuttgart is the capital of Baden-Würtemburg. It is and was the largest city in southwestern Germany. In 1960 it was an important transportation center with its airport, its rail junctions and its location on the Neckar River. It was also an important industrial center --- including Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Zeiss-Ikon, Kodak, some major textile companies and some 230 book publishing houses.

Stuttgart was alsothe third biggest wine producer in Germany --after Duerkheim in the Palatinate and Heilbronn on the Neckar. Stuttgart then had approximately 1,100 acres of vineyards inside the city limits. Its eight million fruit trees within a 20-mile radius made it the largest orchard community in Germany. (Fodor, pg 219.)

Stgt Hauptbahnhof (Hauptbahnhof)

The main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) was the introduction to Stuttgart for almost all of us.

This view of the Hauptbahnhof requires no label to identify it. The Daimler-Benz three-pointed star sits atop the tower. The yellow and black street cars identify Stuttgart as the location.

Only the clothing belies the unusually warm New Year's Day in 1960.
