1: Darmstadt

During the visits I mentioned on the Frankfurt page, I
was able to pay two very fleeting visits to Darmstadt
in 1969 and 1970 and obtained a handful of photographs
which are reproduced here. Darmstadt is interesting in
that it is not run by a municipality but by the HEAG
(Hessische-Elektrizitäts-Aktien-Gesellschaft).


Ich danke sehr Peter Bickelhaupt von
HEAG, der die Mehrheit den Standorten den
Darmstadt Aufnahmen für mich bestimmt hat.

My sincere thanks go to Peter Bickelhaupt
of HEAG, who has identified the majority
of the Darmstadt locations for me.
