of Glen Chesnut
PRECIOUS FEW SURVIVED
The small collection of black and white photographs appearing on this website are special. WHY? When Glen was in the army in the 1950s, he was stationed in Germany. He mailed many of his photos to his parents, who were living in Tehachapi, California. He believed his parents would hold onto them until he returned.
Unfortunately, his parents threw them away. They didn’t realize the photos were an invaluable record of German and European life only a decade after World War II.
Here’s a look at post-war European life, as seen through Glen’s eyes.
