Munsterlager (Munster Training Area) on the Lüneburg Heath. Germany 1926.
 
The "§ 11" (on the barrel) is the best known paragraph in German "Bier-Comments" (Beer code), i.e. the jocular regulations of drinking beer in student pubs.
 
It reads "Es wird fortgesoffen", freely translated with "Keep on drinking". Therefore "§ 11" often appears on funny photographs around the turn of the century.
