A complete street front view of the Silberstraße in the west saxon city Crimmitschau between Fleischergasse and Mannichswalder Platz (Mannichswalde Square). This section of the street is also the main shopping street in the city centre of Crimmitschau. From the City-Apotheke to the Löwen-Apotheke (both pharmacies) the facades form the west front of the marketsquare. At the left end in front of the Volksbank building and the Rossmann store the Taubenmarkt is situated, where once the town’s landmark, the Rote Turm (the red tower), was standing on the opposite side. Crimmitschau has been an important city in germany’s textile industry and here in late 1903 one of the largest industrial strikes of the german empire took place. Today the city has about 20.000 inhabitants and is having the typical structural problems of east german small towns, partly visible in the mix of retail shops along the Silberstrasse as well. This panorama was taken in 2013 and completed in 2014 as part of the IBUg Stoff+Leder in Crimmitschau, as well as during the 600 years City Rights Jubilee of Crimmitschau.
This Panorama was captured in March 2013
