Shop of Mr Braun

Date:n.d.
Client:Mr Braun
Type:Shops
Status:Extant

Mr. Braun was a watchmaker and also lived in the back of his shop. He played an important role in the development of trout fishing in the area, as he took it upon himself to protect the trout, and ordered eggs and stocked the rivers with fingerlings, travelling vast distances to do so, sometimes on foot or on his bicycle.
