Old Shop and Company Signs in Wismar's Old Town Jun 27, 2009
Time stood still in Wismar. If you keep your eyes open you can still spot the signs and advertisements of shops and companies that have long ceased to exist. Some may date before the First World War.

Photo 1: The store in Spiegelberg produced and sold sails, waterproof clothing, ropes, nautical maps, and about everything else a sailor needed. The style of the scripture points to the 1920s, if not even pre-World War I.

Photo 2: The workshop of a mechanic in Scheuerstraße advertises repairs on cars and motorbikes.

Photo 3: Heinerich Peters produced smoked eel and other fish in Neustadt.

Photo 4: The „Steam Washing and Ironing Institute“ (in other words: laundry) was located next to Marienkirche.

Photo 5: The big grain stores in the harbour still bear the inscription from DDR times: „VEB Kombinat Getreidewirtschaft, Betrieb Wismar“ (People-owned collective combine grain industry, factory Wismar).
