    view profile webstriker Pro User says: the red cross was an iron cross....... The Iron cross is still used by the German air force... So its not a political symbol... And its also worn by many Swedish nurses perticulary in the county of Värmland where all nurses receive a medal very similar to an Iron cross... You are actually allowed to wear it on a military parade uniform in a similar manner as the germans wore it, thats kinda strange thou

    Fascinating picture- and she wouldn't look out of place in a "Steampunk" modern art photo ;) Seriously, it's a beautiful picture-yet these old pictures seems to have that "ghostly" look about them-I like to look and wonder what she was thinking when it was taken.
