1935 Gonningen Photo postcard franked with Scott 432, 452 and 454 meeting the 15 Rpf postal rate to the United States
Lot 12
Post card franked with Scott 432, 452 and 454 meeting the 15 Rpf postal rate to the United States. Mailed from
Gonningen (Wiirtteinberg) 4 September 1935.
Although Gonningen is briefly mentioned in the 1929 edition of Baedeker’s Southern Germany as 10 miles east of Reutlingen (which is approximately 25 miles south of Stuttgart), this apparently tiny village at 1760 feet altitude in the Schwabische Alb, does not appear on the 1938 edition of the map published by Der Deutsche Automobil-Club, or in more recent maps of Germany.
Gonningen nevertheless was prominent enough to merit its own special cancellation: (Widely known seed shipment)

Wiirttemberg, a former German state, lost sovereignty to the Reich in 1934. The Schwabische Alb is an undulating limestone plateau forming the central part of the Swaben region in southern Germany, broadly intersected by picturesque valleys.
It is about 130 miles long and 10-25 miles wide.
