Grain elevators in Demmin, Germany
On pages 110-111, I mention the Speicherensemble (the group of storage containers) at the Peenehafen (Peene Harbor) in Demmin, Germany. A caption to this picture, which appears on the website of the City of Demmin, explains that, moving from right to left, we see the Luebecker Speicher, built around 1820, the Berliner Speicher, built in 1900, and an unnamed pair of Speichern, built in 1925. Note the ever-growing height of such buildings.
