Great photos, we used to live in Stade, not far from Bremen & Luneburg. Anxious to read your trip report.

Hi Michael, liked your photos. I am particularly interested in the squat white buildings with sparse interiors and no furniture. Was that somewhere in the east?

If Lavendula is referring the ones I'm thinking about, they were in the group added to previous pictures of Saxony-Anhalt, several frames before the Quedlinburg manhole cover.

I wouldn't mind knowing the answer to that question, myself.

The white buildings are all part of the Bauhaus project of the 1920's. The series includes the school itself, some of the professors' housing, a riverside restaurant, and the actual housing developments for the general population, both row houses and apartments. One house and one apartment are in their original condition and are part of the museum tour.

Hi Michael, yes, I think you got the right images - I just went back and could not tell how to get the number but they are certainly part of the ones added to Saxony-Anhalt. I was intrigued by how sparse the interiors were (obviously because it was on display) but now you say Bauhaus that makes perfect sense. Was that Naumburg?

All the buildings are in Dessau. I am not aware that the Bauhaus school was in Naumburg. It started in Weimar, moved to Dessau and eventually to Berlin for a couple of years.

BTW, if I find a manhole cover that contains the name of the city, that is the first picture for that city. If I find different manhole cover designs for the same city, I start the series with one and spread the others among the pictures of that city--as in the Bremen set.
