The yacht is interesting too. Looks like an old Feadship.

Hallo Manfred,

probably you´re right. The photo was taken by my grandfather and on the backside is the notice "Gdingen". As he lived in Hamburg the photo is probably taken there.

"Taken in Gdynia by family member in the fifties."

Location looks awfully like Überseebrücke in Hamburg!
