These photos were taken by Eberhard von Koenen, who built much of Gobabeb's first infrastructure in the early 1960s. Eberhard von Koenen tells his story in a video filmed by Conrad Roedern, who is Erich Luebbert's grandson. Erich Luebbert was an early benefactor of Gobabeb, and his name is on a plaque affixed to a wall in Gobabeb's administrative headquarters, which is formally known as Erich Luebbert House. Conrad Roedern has kindly donated this collection of historic photos to Gobabeb.
