Dating postcard photographs

Some sources say the painting on the wall represented Eva, perhaps with her face painted onto a model's body by artist Adolf Ziegler.

The open doorway was the entrance to the Berghof itself, directly behind the photographer's standpoint.

The original version of this colorized (and cropped) postcard identifies this room as simply a Berghof guest room.

It is sometimes identified today as Eva Braun's living room (although there was no such "living room" in the Berghof), but it actually served as Gretl Braun's bedroom (called the Trkenzimmer because of its view of Haus Trken).

The wooden walkway that made its way down this hillside was the beginning of the path for Hitler's daily walk to the Mooslahnerkopf Teehaus.

The grand staircase led from the driveway to the Berghof entrance.
