pitty that time have been passing people iognored the value
of old industrial plants.
The suspended railroad of Wuppertal and the main railroad
station of Krefeld are still being used for daily busines
today, but a lot of old valuable plants can no longer be
used for their original purposes.
More immovables became a victim of pulling downs during
the 1950s and 1960s than in the time of the Second World
You will be impressed to notice the afford of the builders
to give their architecture an artificial outfit. Surely
there were some capitalists who wanted to built their own
monuments in order to remain unforgotten.
But the Ruhr - district shall not be a living museum. The
region must develop itself. The very good restaurated immovables
can offer artificians and sportsmen a new home today.
And so culture has been becoming a new economical good of
our region, because nobody can live from idealism.
