Mobile Magazine Kiosk on the Main Street in Berlin-Schöneberg (1928)
The newspaper industry reached new heights in Germany during the 1920s. The large Berlin-based publishers such as Mosse, Scherl, and Ullstein published up to four newspaper editions per day. While Alfred Hugenberg’s nationalist media conglomerate dominated the conservative end of the political spectrum, communist Willi Münzenberg’s Neuer Deutscher Verlag represented the left. In addition to daily newspapers, periodicals and illustrated magazines catered to a wide variety of popular tastes and interests.
