This stein (ECS416) is modelled on one of the Nuremberg towers, namely the Frauentorturm, rebuilt to its present form in 1558, to guard the Frauentor (gate). This tower is unique due to its arched windows and round, top window. In 1849 the city wall was opened up close by, and a new gate, the Königstor was built for traffic access to the railway station. Due to essential road widening, the Königstor was demolished in 1892. Because of its proximity to the Königstor, the Frauentorturm was, and still is, often wrongly referred to, as the Königstorturm. Today, the Frauentor has pedestrian access only. This stein was made by Marzi & Remy; #1190.

Kunstgewerbehaus L. Ostermayr occupied 31- 37 Königsstraße, which is the large three gabled building on the right hand side of the street. You can see the church of St. Lorenzkirche at the top of the street. Their relative positions can be seen on the map in the right hand column. (Click to enlarge. N.B. Close enlargement PRIOR to opening another picture!) This scene, circa 1900, was destroyed during WWII. St Lorenzkirche has been restored, but the majority of the street has been rebuilt in
the post war style.
