habigman Posted January 13, 2017 Report Share Posted January 13, 2017 Altenburg, Germany Factory converted to a hotel (Parkhotel). Altenburg was a major hat manufacturing center up to WWII. "The Hat Factory "Max Förster" , which specialized in the production of wool and hair hats, was since 1872 in what is now Park Hotel on Great Pond. It was one of the largest factories in Altenburg and produced about 2,400 hats a day (1880). After a modernization of the production, the factory even had its own electric power plant starting in 1888. http://hutmacherhandwerk.blogspot.com/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
