History

Current Pabuca topic. Hmm, I’ve shown several photos containing Pfaffenhofen’s history in one kind or another before. So what should I take this time?

I decided I get something from the archive: from last year’s celebration of the 575th anniversary of when Pfaffenhofen was first mentioned as town (the place itself existed before: first mentioned in 1140, “market” in 1197, “oppidum” in 1318).

Bouncing town halls – that is, bouncing castles looking like the town hall – probably aren’t that old:

But documents may be so old:

And a genuine photo from the city’s marching band back then: ;)

    Ein sehr schönes Gemälde in deiner dritten Abbildung der Frührenaissance im fotorealistischen Stil. Erstaunlich! :)

    Mit der Zeit ändert sich im Leben so einiges. Übrig von der Vergangenheit bleibt die Geschichte, die wir unseren Nachkommen mit Begeisterung erzählen können. Gefällt mir ziemlich gut – und ja die Männer hatten es wirklich druuuuf gehabt :lol:.
