Photo archive Josef Beierl

The archive, which comprises approximately 800 photographs, documents the Berchtesgadener Land, its surroundings and the life of the photographer's family in the 1920s and 1930s. The trained electrician and cooper Josef Beierl was a passionate photographer who preferred to document his excursions using the self-timer.

The archive was received as a donation from the descendants' possession in 2018/2019.
