    If you’re in Munich, Dr. Shaughnessy, where can we meet you? It would be quite a treat for me, even if I get into a “so… what do we do now?” fugue state.

    As historical trivia to the first painting cited above. Depending on which city the occupying forces were in, the Germans (and in Vienna, Austrians) had very funny, punny, dark nicknames for the patrols of American (French, English or sometimes, joint powers) that drove around. It could be translated as The Creeps in the Jeeps, or the Elephants in the Jeep. I’m sure there are many more that I’ve not discovered.

    The problem is that the process of paper production at that time produced paper that was acidic, which leads to the paper falling apart after a few decades. Thus it is very difficult to conserve, as the pH level of the paper has to be shifted for long time conservation.
