On 20 October, the morning was spent inspecting the party congress structures. The New York Times reported that “the Duke was frank in expressing his astonishment at the tremendous size of the halls and the stadiums already completed and the ambitious character of the buildings still in process of construction.”1
The Duke also seemed rather annoyed with the photographers, and a secret police agent finally removed the photographers and threatened to imprison them. A visit to a “Strength Through Joy” village followed next. This village was devoted to entertaining groups of touring workers and also worked during party congresses. The village consisted of long rows of wooden beer halls, and the Duke and Duchess visited nearly every hall.
