Two successive frames from a cine-film taken by A J Sylvester at the time of David Lloyd George's visit to Germany in 1936. These show A J Sylvester with his cine camera held up to his eye. Presumably shot in a mirror.

A man in a fedora and fair isle sweater sitting on the deck of 'Sabrina.' Two persons are standing near the camera on the left and are out of focus. Only their torsos are included in the picture.

[Adolf Hitler]

Two successive frames from a cine-film of Hitler taken at the time of David Lloyd George's visit in 1936. David Lloyd George is not visible.

[Aerodrome and plane]

An aeroplane on the ground at an unknown aerodrome. The plane is seen from a distance but is very similar to a Dornier Do-X seaplane. The Do-X was financed by the German Transport Ministry and built in a specially designed plant at Altenrhein, on the Swiss portion of Lake Constance, in order to circumvent the Treaty of Versailles which forbade any aircraft exceeding set speed and range limits to be built in Germany after World War I. The plane was completed in 1929. In his diary A J Sylvester writes that the Lloyd George entourage witnessed it taking off on a trial flight on Sept 4th 1929.
