Signs

Feuersozietät

The sign of a fire insurance on a house in Brandenburg.  It was founded 1718.

I saw this sign in Frankfurt.  I thought it was a foreign alphabet but couldn’t find a match.  Then I got up I looked at the picture skew and realised it’s a word: T U M U L T (the same word exists in German), probably the name of a bar.

P1320676

I think this alludes to a German saying: The place to which even a king has to go to on foot.
