Ironworks Co-op

  1. Happy Nikolaus! It's amazing that there are still old signs around - I like the perspective (and am under the impression I have said this a thousand times already on your blog, ;-)). Without the blue door the photo might have been a little bit too simple.

  2. Looks like there are ironworks all over Germany.

  4. Hi there,

    Very beautiful old sign. It's nice to see that there still is room for these signs.

    Best regards
    Asta

  5. Thanks for the comments.

    Martina: Happy Nikolaus, to you too (a day late). I guess I could have sought out something more seasonal for the day's photo.

    Joan Elizabeth: As Martina has pointed out, Saarland has traditionally been an area especailly strong in iron and steel-making. And this site is one of the most historical, being one of the first in proto-Germany to enter the industrial revolution.

    Asta: Thanks.

    Frau G: Danke.
