You might say I'm a collector. I collect rare objects. Facts, stories...I travel the roads of Germany seeking its heart.

Dairy Farm 201

Dairy Farm somewhere in Northern Germany

This abandoned dairy farm was put into operation in 1889 and used the most modern technical facilities for the processing and preservation of milk. It used a combination of steam and centrifuge in this process. Regular modernization of the dairy farm secured state-of-the-art milk processing. But the economic situation of small farms deteriorated, and in 1972, the company was closed down.
With the sale to an art lecturer the dairy farm was turned into an art house and the character of the building changed. More changed when a new owner bought the building in 1978. He founded an "art factory", in which art was exhibited and produced. Over the years, the art factory aqcuired fame...(more)

Butter Factory N. [Revisit]

Butter Factory in Northern Germany

Gallery Update! New photos added from October 10, 2016.

 

This abandoned factory produced butter. Lots of butter. It was founded in the late 1950s with the goal of processing the cream from all the local dairy farms in order to achieve a consistent quality. By the early 1960, around fourty dairy farms were incorporated into this enterprise. The production reached about 4.000 tons p.a.
In the late 1960s, a dairy processing plant was built and in the following years, about fifty more dairy operations were incorporated. The production reached about 15.000 tons by the early 1970.
When the churning plant was expanded in the 1980s, the production peaked at 33.000 tons..

Tour Report: Olympic Village 1936

Published 2017-03-18

Olympic Village 1936

The Olympic Village from 1936 was not too far from the first location of the day, so we decided to pay it a visit.
Since an association is taking care of the place, collecting money and organizing events and guided tours to be able to keep the buildings in relatively good condition, we didn't know what to expect.
We found a parking lot and a ticket booth. You can get single tickets or tickets for guided tours, but these wouldn't grant access to any of the buildings.
But there was the option of a guided photo tour for at the time (I think) 13 Euros per head that included everything, so we went for this option. After a while, the guide came (he had to be called from home) and took us on an almost three-hour long tour of the entire area...

Saint Joseph Oriol Plaque in Barcelona, Spain (Fri, 24 Mar 2017)
Plaque of Saint Joseph Oriol. This tiny landmark, located on the side of the Church of Santa Maria del Pi in the middle of Barcelona's dense Gothic Quarter, marks a seemingly trivial event. On April 6, 1806, priest José Mestres fell off a walkway on the outside of the church's apse. He rose unscathed from the experience, and attributed the event to Joseph Oriol, a Catalan priest at del Pi whose remains are interred inside the church. Oriol was renowned for his healing miracles in 17th century Barcelona. He was said to have cured the deaf, blind, mute, and otherwise disabled people who came to him. But despite his accomplishments in life, sainthood can only be bestowed upon someone after their death. As a result of this little posthumous miracle, Oriol was canonized by the pope in September of the same year. A small plaque was installed on the corner of the church to commemorate Padre Mestres' blessed fall.
