Commemorative Photograph Album of Löwenbräu Beer Halls in Post-War Germany (1945-1952)

Commercial photograph album, 7.5 x 9.25 in., containing 120 original b/w photographs, as well as a hand-drawn, colored Oktoberfest menu. Photos are approximately 2 x 3 in. Some wear on boards, all 32 pages interleaved with glassine, almost all photographs captioned in a clear hand; very good. A commemorative album for Löwenbräu head master brewer Joseph Schülein (active 1895-1938) and his son, Dr. Hermann Schülein, who was instrumental in the management and development of the company's brand. The photographs show the interior and exteriors of Löwenbräu beer halls and taverns in Munich, Rottach, Sttutgart, Bad Reichenhall, Rosenheim, Utting, Herrsching, and other locales in Southern Germany, many of them small towns. Captions identify the buildings and the dates they were opened or re-opened. Among them is the Bürgerbräukeller, which has been the largest beer hall in Munich since the 19th century, when Löwenbräu merged with Bürgerliches Brauhaus. The Bürgerbräukeller was damaged Allied bombing in 1945, and some of the photographs here document its reconstruction. The building served as an American Red Cross Club starting in late 1945 and became a Special Services club before the renovations in 1947. A valuable record of post-war German reconstruction and the expansion of the Löwenbräu brewing empire.
