Former post office in 43, Kaiserstraße

“The new post office building is finished in the shell”, the daily newspaper reported on 13 June 1901, and a little later it was said: “From that point on (1 October 1901) the post office is located in the new building Neuer Weg 63c”. The picture shows the ground floor of this former post office building around 1930 with the couple Laurenz Kahlen. By 1928, the mail had moved into the building on Lindenplatz, and in Haus Kaiserstraße 43 (meanwhile, the street name and numbering had changed) there was now a grocery store, as is still the case today (food Carduck).
