On German Soil

Vintage Cigarette card album depicting the German farmers in their daily lives.

The story starts in 1500 with the Danes attacking Dithmarsch. They are surprised by 300 farmers led by Wulf
Isebrand who attack them with cannon. The Danes try to flee but the farmers have opened the dykes, flooding
the countryside cutting off the retreat. The Danes are defeated.

From these early days of glory, the album follows the life of the farming people from North and South, from East
and West, in Summer and Winter, in youth and in old age. The album finishes with another glorious day in the life
of the farming folk. It is harvest festival, and farmers from all over gather in Bückeberge.

Altogether, this album provides a fascinating look at the lives of ordinary farming folk.

... complete with all colored tobacco cards.
