Our correspondent in Essen, Fabio, whose interest is the history of his hometown Essen, recently researched the Georg S. Hirschland Estate, Franzenshöhe. He has sent us maps, pictures, postcards, and more of the property as it existed in the early 20th century, and as it exists now. Note that a lot of this information relies on Google Translate from German to English and back. If we have made a mistake, please comment below.
Franzenshohe is about eight kilometers (approx 5 miles) south of Essen.
