petrol station Mörse

May 2017: Until the 1980s, the village of Mörse in the Wolfsburg district had a petrol station next to the supermarket. Note that regular fuel was selling for DM 1,35 (EUR 0,67)! The petrol station building with various small stores on the other side was torn down, and the spot is now part of a larger parking space for a new supermarket.

Luckily, Mörse’s old half-timbered blacksmith’s shop in the background was renovated and today houses the medical practice of Hartmann and Riemer.

Pauluskirche

April 2017: Easter is coming, and this photo is relatively new. But it is already retro in two aspects: the Eighties experienced a great 50s and 60s revival (today celebrated under the Mid-century Modern motto). In addition, there presently is no such photo position, because there is a large area fenced in for a new kindergarten building. Thirdly, this church architecture by Gerhard Langmaack is always a little in the shadow of our beautiful Aalto buildings of that same era. So you only have to imagine the vegetation a bit smaller!
