Details

In the early 20th century, the Kaffee Handelsgesellschaft AG (Kaffee HAG, Koffie Hag) in Bremen, Germany, began publishing a series of picture albums with German municipal arms. The pictures and accompanying albums were the result of an initiative of the Brücke Association. This association was an initiative of Kaiser Wilhelm II and aimed to archive all published printed matter in Germany. The association also developed a series of standard sizes for printed matter. To promote their activities and standards, companies were encouraged to use the prescribed formats. One of the companies that agreed to this was Kaffee Hag. The pictures in the picture albums are therefore printed in Weltformat V (4 x 5.66 cm), which is also printed on the back of the oldest pictures. The albums themselves were printed in World format IX (16 x 22.6 cm). The Brücke Association went bankrupt in 1913 and was abolished in 1914, but the format of the plates remained the same throughout the issue period (1910-1960). Since only German and Swiss pictures were published before 1914, only those pictures contain a reference to the Brücke Association. The albums were released more or less simultaneously in Germany and Switzerland around 1910. In both countries it was set up as a series, but the series was not completed due to the First World War. In the 1920s a new series was started in both countries, but albums were also released in other countries. The following albums have been issued: Germany old series: 6 albums, plus a series of pictures of Schlesien (Silesia), of which the album is missing Switzerland old series: 4 albums Germany new series: 10 albums, 11th album (German-Austria) planned but not issued Switzerland new series: 19 albums, but due to many reprints, more than 60 different albums are known Netherlands: 2 albums, loose-leaf with various bindings Belgium: 6 albums, 3 in Dutch, 3 in French Poland: 1 album, 2nd album planned, not released Danzig: 1 album Norway: 1 album, with a reprint Sweden: 1 album Denmark: 1 album Yugoslavia: 1 album Austria: 1 album, with regular and deluxe edition Czechoslovakia: 1 album, with regular and deluxe edition England / Ireland: 1 album France (as Café Sanka): 6 albums out of 42 planned
