^^ First photo: Very Happy Very Happy I imagine that the three kids felt secure in this pose all together; catch any one by themselves and they'd have probably "behaved".
Last photo: The old German script on the wall is tough to read, but is "Hotel u. Gasthof Alte Post" (Hotel and Inn Old Post) which many small towns have.

The lens looks more like the lenses used on Messerschmidts.

You mean the early Hella turn signals that were also used on the Messerschmitt... yeah, your right, looks like it. The ones on that Messerschmitt have what we use to refer to as puffs, as Iíve come across them on Volkswagens, they are not a factory install. The ones on that split have the slim profile type, normally associated with Volkswagens.
