1950s Zurich typewriter repair shop

Have a view inside the Baggenstos typewriter repair shop, Zurich, ca. 1953. August Baggenstos and his HERMAG distribution company was the general representative of Hermes typewriters for the German speaking part of Switzerland.

You see the mechanics at work at the Hermes models of the time. Can you identify them all?

Typewriters in Cologne 2014

Sorry Robert, no Breker for me this time... instead, the MYTHICAL PARKING LOT. Here is a quick selection of typewriter etc. sightings. As the German collectors community is very shy about "photos on the internet", alas no persons :)
