Germany, Germany Above All "Good Times" Photo 1

by Verena Kick

This is the second photograph of the section "Good Times." It shows a worker with a hammer resting on his shoulder while he is on break. Tucholsky text does not directly address this photograph. The frame size of the takes up the full page. There is only a small column to the left of the photograph left for the text. Due to its size and its central position within the essay and its layout, this photograph of a worker dominates the essay. In addition, the same photograph is featured in an earlier publication by Tucholsky, titled "10 Jahre Deutsche Republik" that appeared in the AIZ, vol. 7, no. 44, Nov. 1928.

This is the first photograph of the section "Good Times." It depicts Phillip Scheidemann' speech and proclamation of the German Republic on the Reichstag balcony, 9 November 1918. Tucholsky's text refers directly to the photograph, pointing out to his readers what has and has not changed ten years after the proclamation. Tucholsky also goes on to describe the mass of listeners depicted in the photograph.
