Fischerviertel, Ulm, c.1930



ulm 2

Known as the Fischerviertel or Fishermen’s Quarter this was, not surprisingly, the part of Ulm where the tanners and fishermen lived. It lies close to the river Danube and, being on the edge of the city centre, escaped destruction in 1944. It has hardly changed at all from when the stereograph was taken in the 1930s. The timber-framed houses, many of which date back to the Middle Ages, give a good impression of how much of Ulm looked prior to the onset of World War Two.
