We tend to overlook things like plaster & lathe walls, wallpaper and other details that make a ruin realistic. Thanks for doing this.

Many thanks for posting some great photos!! Color pics enable one to see details as Bill mentioned in a "new light" as opposed to trying to guess at what's there from some old war archives that are sometimes grainy or out of focus.

Great idea. Thanks for sharing those photos.

I was thinking, "What a shame to tear down such an old, historic building" but then I remembered that 150 years isn't actually all that old for a building in Europe.

I do think it is a crime to see that beautiful dressed stone knocked down instead of taken down. I do however really like the photographs and I feel they will prove of great use to some here.

Thanks for sharing Hans-Hermann ! Did DB build a new station to replace the old station ? It is a shame that the building couldn't be saved and used for other purposes.
Any chance that you would have a picture of the station before demolition ?
Thanks again for the fotos !
