A Female Reportage Photographer Surveys Berlin (c. 1910) Women in journalistic professions were a rarity in Wilhelmine Germany. Nonetheless, some women did succeed in establishing themselves as journalists – initially, they did so by working for the women’s newspapers and magazines that had been around since the middle of the nineteenth century; later on, they also worked for large newspapers. In this photograph (c. 1910), a female photographer surveys metropolitan Berlin from a crane being used in the construction of the Stadthaus [City Hall] on Molkenmarkt. The City Hall was built as an extension of the Rotes Rathaus [Red City Hall], whose large tower can be seen at the right. The Berliner Dom [Berlin Cathedral] can be seen in the background off to the left. via GHDI
“My mother loved it so, she said “Sad eyed pearl and drop lips “Glancing pierce through writer man “Spoke hushed and frailing hips “Her old eyes skim in creasing lids “A tear falls as she describes “Approaching death with a yearning heart “With pride and no despise”
“Hot tears flow as she recounts “Her favorite worded token “Forgive me please for hurting so “Don’t go away heartbroken, no”
