Studenten Vater. (Gustav Vater) 
 Zülpicherstraße 85, Altermarkt 47, Ludwigstraße 2, Koln, Bahnstraße 35 & 89 Weiden bei Köln, Prussia (now Weiden, a suburb of Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia)
Malerei. / Decorators
Known dates: 1883 - 1930

Probably founded at Zülpicherstraße 85, next to the university, circa 1883. Heinrich Worringen had a shop at Altermarkt 47 and it is believed that for a period around 1907 - 1911, or even later, Gustav Vater shared premises with him. Vater might even have been the supplier of Worringen's porcelain decoration service. At sometime, the spelling of Altermarkt was changed to Alter Markt. In the 1920's Vater moved to Bahnstraße, which is now a residential area.
The German spelling for Cologne, varied over the years. So in 1900 the Prussian Minister for Interior Affairs, issued an edict that the correct spelling for Cologne was 
Cöln. However, on the 1st February 1919, the mayor of Cologne, Konrad Adenauer, stated the official name was again Köln. Probably most people continued to use the spelling they preferred.
