The English translation of this letter is below.

Dear Mr. Speer:
In your exhibition "Linz- Romances of an Industrial City" you open up to the viewer a view of Linz that is - if not new - certainly unusual.

Linz, the "steel-city", is at the same time the motive for your pictures - the Weber School, the Mountain Castle. I am personally very grateful to you for this perspective for it shows a different face of Linz, one that has become very dear to me.

I remain with gratitude for your artistic engagement with Linz and with the best wishes for your career.

With best wishes,
Your Hugo Schanovsky
