Seeking any information on this photo (date/location/photographer).

243716812_10159942440452577_6937074817316850228_n.jpg

It is definitely Vienna, easy to recognise by the licence numbers (starting with the letter "W" for Wien). Unfortunately,  the exact location isn´t clear to me as Robert´s head/hair is obscuring an important part of the background. Most likely (90% certainty) the location is Rechte Wienzeile, 4th or 5th district, towards 1st district downtown. On the leftside one can see some building cranes for the construction of the tube/subway at Karlsplatz.

Btw, Robert´s clothes make me furious. The 16th of March 1973 was a cold day in Vienna: daily highs 7 centigrade/ 44 f, morning & evening temperature around 2 centigrade/ 35 f. No wonder his voice was in terrible shape a few hours later.

Actually, his voice was shot since January and dressing like he did on such a cold day wasn´t very bright. Obviously, he couldn´t care less.

Europe 1973 by Wolfgang Heilemann (I believe that's him behind Robert), who travelled with the band for a few shows and shot for Bravo & others. This photo is either in Germany or Vienna. 

Here's one from Montreux 72:

Wonderful! Eye Thank Yew!!

hello, i saw this pic earlier today and wanted to know who posted it, since my grandmother has this pic in a photo album but it’s in a poor quality and a wee blemished by the age. 

 i would even ask her but she would probably be offended cuz she probably already told me the history behind the pic, and also i can only see this photo again the next time she opens the photo album at some family bowsie like christmas.

 

so, if anyone knows who took it or where it was, i would be very grateful, even if it was just the photographer, as i already know the date of the pic.
