Taken around 1958, this photograph shows a woman posing with an Auto Union DKW 1000 at Berlin. The DKW letters stood for Dampf - Kraft - Wagen or Steam-powered vehicle as the first design of the founder, Jörgen Skafte Rasmussen, was indeed a steam car.
DKW formed part of Auto Union, an amalgamation of four car producers in 1932 and predecessor of what is known as Audi in the 21st century. Respresenting the Audi, Horch, DKW and Wanderer brands, the four interlocking rings used as a logo can be seen on the boot of this vehicle, the registration number of which was B-RM 63. Earlier models bore the DKW badge but this car featured the four-ring Auto Union badge across the boot and air grill at the front.
Produced between 1958 and 1965 and featuring front-wheel drive, this car was viewed as a slightly upmarket vehicle. This model appears to be the 1000 Coupé version. A pillarless coupé was also produced by the company.
You can download a large version of this image [up to 3000 x 2250 pixels] providing you with an image capable of being placed in a large picture frame. Below there are two segments of the image showing the detail within the image.
This is how the image would look in a picture frame. The image would look good in a frame with a mount aperture up to 16 x 12. I can supply images in a frame. Photo processing, framing and postage would mean a turnaround of 2-3 weeks. Pricing variable depending on size and shipping destination.
Paypal is the preferred payment for this site - it is one of the safest online payment methods and allows you to pay with a number of cards. You DO NOT need a Paypal account to pay but perhaps you should consider setting one up - it's free and easy to do so. Why have your credit card details with lots of retailers when you could just have one account that is accepted by many websites. I DO NOT see your credit/debit card details and this site is secure - note the GREEN PADLOCK in the address bar showing that all information is encrypted.
Each image is priced on the website and each image has an "add to basket" button. When you press one of these buttons you will be directed to your shopping basket. You can remove items by updating the basket. If you wish to continue viewing images and/or buy further photos you can use the "continue shopping" button to return to the page you were browsing. Please ensure you are selecting the option in the drop-down menu for the image you require. You can always delete items from your basket before you checkout. Once you are finished browsing and shopping simply review your purchases and, if you're ready, checkout.
When you are ready to pay press the "proceed to checkout" button. Paypal account holders simply log in and pay with a click. Paypal generates an invoice for you and a copy is sent to the website when your images will be sent via e-mail with attachments. I like to do it this way as I feel I can provide that little extra customer service with a friendly message and some advice on how to safely store your images on your computer's hard drive or other media.
Your image will be sent to the e-mail address used to pay via Paypal. If you prefer to receive your image via another e-mail address please leave an instruction in the "message to merchant" box on your invoice.
All orders are processed as quickly as possible but the office is not a 24/7 operation. I may be on the road taking photographs, on a cycle ride or even down the pub! I do however like to keep everyone happy and, as such, I generally process orders on the same day. You are a valued customer and are treated as such.
