Gasthaus "Zur Sonne" / Inn "at the Sun" - another view
Photographer: Andrew Ruppenstein
Taken: September 24, 2019
Caption: Gasthaus "Zur Sonne" / Inn "at the Sun" - another view
Additional Description: This view of the inn clearly shows the "sun" hanging from the corner of the building. Prior to the widespread diffusion of literacy (and house numbering systems, for that matter), symbols like this were mounted on buildings to make them easier to identify and remember.
