Böblinger Straße, Part Three

Zugegebenermaßen ist das Gebäude nicht gerade das schönste. Die Schmierereien, unter denen der Stadtteil im allgemeinen und das Haus im besonderen zu leiden hat, tragen auch nicht zur Verschönerung bei. Aber es ist eines der älteren Gebäude, die noch ihren eigenen Charakter oder Charme besitzen.
I must admit that the pictured building is not the most beautiful one. The scribblings which weigh on the building and on the whole quarter don't really add to the beautification. But it's one of the older buildings in this street section which holds its own "personality" or charme.
Ein kleines Detail, auf das ich noch aufmerksam machen möchte...
I also want to suggest this detail of the above pictured house...

You are right, it does have a certain charm.

The building itself look okay, what it needs is remocal of the graffity and Restauration of the masonary then it would look great again.

The sad thing is, as soon as you paint over the grafiti, it comes back again. I like this building though. Especially the details.

Interesting tour of the area. MB

I think it's quite unique (you wouldn't find this architecture in the states so far as I know) and quite beautiful.

It's beyond me, though, we wackos all over the world see it as their right to deface private and public property!
