More about this marker. Although the marker carries a date of 1855, the present tablet is likely a replacement for the original marker, which was probably destroyed in WW II. That is, there are a number of similar historical markers (same font, size and material) but bearing different dates, on buildings in the center of the city, which was heavily damaged by bombing during the war.
