Page 3. " A wonderful job with a good family in Frankfurt "

Frankfurt is a city in the southwestern part of Germany. The river which flows through its centre is called the Main. In 1910 there were about 414,000 people living in the city.  Today there are about 704,000.

It is sometimes known as Frankfurt am Main (Frankfurt on Main) so as not to confuse it with Frankfurt (Oder), a town in northeast Germany.
