Default Aftermath of Allied Bombing on Hamburg Photo Assistance...

I recently obtained this Postcard size photo picturing the aftermath of an Allied Bombing on Hamburg. What I’m looking for is the location of this specific building, and if the original building is still standing today or was completely destroyed during the war.

Note the “C H Meyer” sign / logo on in the background - C.H. Meyer still in existence today in Hamburg (current address listed as Ellerholzweg 1, 21107 Hamburg)

http://www.genios.de/firmen/firma/CH...klaration.html

Was my photo also taken at Ellerholzweg 1 or was the building destroyed and C.H. Meyer today has long been at a different location in Hamburg ??? I'm sure a wartime civilian Hamburg telephone book would list the Street Address of C.H. Meyer at the time....

Any assistance would be appreciated...

Many Thankx to WAF member "Stormfighter" for the information / link / photo below


Definitely Hamburg. C.H. (Carl Heinrich) Meyer was a well-known company in Hamburg that sold maritime commodities and fuel. The other company named on the building is Eichmeyer. Eichmeyer was a purveyor of women’s coats, costumes and furs. You should enjoy this photo for comparison:

Incidentally, the exact address of Eichmeyer & Co. was Mönckebergstrasse 15-17 according to the 1943 Hamburg telephone book.

Notice the Blaupunkt building on the right … a Bosch owned radio equipment manufacturer, they made all the radio cassettes for Volkwagen/Audis.

Here are the current Google Earth views. They have lined the street with trees now so it's difficult to get a clear view. The third view is as if you have your back to the building and you can see the memorial (or whatever it is) that can be seen in the photo from Hundestaffel.
