Count von Luckner inscribed the attached photo for Carl Wriedt
Enjoyed your site. Had a photo and was attempting to determine value.
On December 16, 1949, Count Luckner came to Cleveland, OH in an effort to raise funds for German reconstruction. I don't recall for what specifically, but it was in the form of bonds.
The fund-raising dinner was held at the Cleveland Hotel. My father-in-law, Carl Wriedt, was the chef who prepared the food. Carl was born in Hamburg, Germany in 1898. After the event was finished, Count Luckner was introduced to Carl. As with everyone else that the Count met, Carl and he became friends.
The inscription reads:
Ships may sink
I imported the photo into a Word Document and is attached as such.
