        See Hitler, Secret Conversations 415  regarding the "Munich trip" where Hitler states: "I well
        remember how difficult it was in 1912, in a town like Munich, to buy a book on the Navy or the colonies."

**...normally painted architectural structures and left people out.**  Charles Ryder, the protagonist in Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, became an “architectural painter” because he felt that man’s highest achievement was his “building,” and men were merely “lodgers and short-term sub-lessees of small importance” in the long, useful life of their creations.
