This smokestack (and a few buildings) are all that is left of a German factory that was based in our town - we live in one of the last factory houses built for the workers (in 1940). I think it's a cool landmark - especially the white bricks.
I was out of the car and up at the fence taking these, so I doubt there are still security dogs, but I didn't want to find out either!
This sign is actually inside of our house. Peter likes to tinker and he took this sign and reworked the electronics so that when the phone is active (it's ringing or you're using it), the "Telephone" light comes on. Pretty sweet (espcially back in the days of dial-up!).
