Facades

Interesting building facades seen in Munich.


Is there any doubt this is a detective agency?


You will have to click on this photo for more details.
On top of each of the figures label each one's occupation. Hopefully, I am translating the labels correctly from left to right...
"Burger" is short for Burgermeister or Town Master.
"Hausfrau" translates to House Mother.
"Kunstler" translates to Performer.
"Jvngfrau" translates to Virgin or Maiden.
"Gelehrte" translates to Scholar.


Statues from centuries ago. If you look closely, it looks like each statue is covered with netting. I wonder if they fear one or more might suddenly fall off.

Enjoyed your trip photos so much. I'll bet the netting is to keep pigeons off the statues. The certainly do look well-cared-for, much better than they would if those pesky birds could roost on them.
