Here is an interesting item I purchased at an estate sale of a fellow who was a military collector. The subject is Eindhoven Cathedral in Eindhoven the Netherlands and was a gift to a Major Klempin, apparently, the occupying Commandant at that time of WW II. It is signed by who I presume to be his staff. I cannot make out the name of the etching's creator and am not sure of the date of its making, although the dress of the persons in the etching look to be early 1900s (?). Any information about this item and the persons that signed it would be appreciated, I offered it to a museum in that city but never heard back from them...
