The 'Hitler Myth'

Found this rare photo of Hitler in 'The Third Reich: Then and Now', which was taken by an amateur photographer in the early to mid-thirties. It's quite remarkable, I think, to actually see a contemporary photo of Hitler which doesn't conform to the carefully controlled public-image of Hitler as the Weberian 'Charismatic authority' figure.
