We're going to the Baltic sea/ Wir fahren an die Ostsee

The formation of the DLRG (Deutsch Lebens Rettungs Gesellschaft) or German live saving association transpired in Leipzig in October 1913. The associations establishment was a direct result of a tragic accident which occurred where this sketch was done, in Binz on the island of Rügen on the Baltic sea coast. In July 1912, 17 people drowned here, 7 of these merely children, when a ship accidentally ran into and destroyed part of the 560 meter long pier.

Die Grundung der Deutsch Lebens Rettungs Gesellschaft hat sich  in Leipzig in Oktober 1913 abgespielt. Es war aufgrund einem Ungluck im Binz auf der Insel Rügen wo ich habe diese Skizze gezeichnet. Im Juli 1912, ertränken 17 menschen hier, 7 davon nur kinder als ein Dampfer hat die damaligen 560 Meter Seebrücke versturzt.

There is a memorial where the pier meets the strand in memory of those who drowned.Es gibt ein denkmal in die nähe von den unglucks stelle 

 The view out of the window of a restaurant built on the pier in a town east of Binz called Sellin was particulary striking but may come across in this sketch as potentially a muraled backdrop.
Der Ausblick von das Fenster in das Restaurant in Sellin sieht irgengwie wie ein wandmalerei in diesen skizzen aus.
The journey through the flat northern plains of Germany afforded great of opportunity to get a decent study done .Der Riese durch die flach nördlich Landschaft bietet tollen Skizze möglichkeiten an.
