The house the other Keller

many Zurich homes, there are these square blue signs, approximately 30 on 30 centimetres tall, which serve the historical classification, and primarily those of the building, even if important, residents or tenants in the majority of cases are also called. On the shield, which is mounted next to the entrance of the traditional restaurants To the goiter" close to the parade square, one reads for example: "Since 1888, the Restaurant and beer hall. The medieval house was in 1881 with the installation of a shop facade by the architects Chiodera & Tschudi to its present appearance. 1888 interior renovation by architect Friedrich Kronauer, with neo-Baroque decoration, paintings by A. J. Hoff Solden for the host Henry Toggweiler Kölliker. Under monument protection since 1975".

it is Different with the non-standard stone (or in rare cases metal) plaques, which can be found on the house doors: they do not represent the architecture, but in any Form of "special" residents in the centre. One of the most famous examples is the Portal of the Spiegelgasse 14 in the lower village, where it is written: "Here resided, from 21. February 1916 to 2. April 1917, Lenin. The leader of the Russian Revolution".

The Unknown from the headquarters

Sort of the opposite of that – so one of the undoubtedly most unknown memorial of the city boards is placed above the entrance of the Heinrich-Federer-Strasse 6 in the urban periphery Wollishofens. This is illuminated next to the venue here today, however, prominent has to do with the former primary school teacher Ernst Reutlinger from the school house in Lee. That is explained in the lesson, our class had a good time, Gottfried Keller's "The people of Seldwyla" by ploughed, rather casually, there is another, far less well-known Zurich-based writer by the name of Keller, Walter Alvares, have for a long time in the neighborhood lived and worked as a novelist, a Jolly adventurer named Peter Stäubli created, most of the works were, to his knowledge, out of print (a term that we fifth-graders, although know, but until then, never with books associated had), but in the library, he said we should be interested, able to find.

If I remember correctly, I loaned it to me "Peter Stäubli in Brazil" and was quite impressed. Which is why I stood one day in front of the green house at the Heinrich-Federer-Strasse 6, awesome of the other cellar of honor and admired, and finally decided I would later want to be a writer. This boy's dream – a low sigh was allowed here – somewhere on the bumpy path of life lost (or, which is more honest: to the claims of shattered) – and so no longer a problem.

The house in Wollishofen from the distance.

the Whole length is no longer an issue, the 1966 deceased was Walter Alvares basement. Probably more later residents of the house didn't even know that he had portrayed in "The white coat hem" of his youth in the rural Wollishofen. That his mother was unmarried Stäubli. He had emigrated in 1927 to Brazil, and there, among other things, as a carrier worked. That he, as literature blogger Christoph Roos writes, was ignored by the official criticism studiously, with his books, however, circulation figures are not reached, "ventured out of which many "real" writer dream". Or that he focused from 1951 to 1965 for the SP in the Zurich municipal policy, but in his social-critical novel "Anny" from the year 1965, the party's internal abuses denounced – and it verscherzte so prompt with the Enjoyed.

Yes, and then the other cellar had been brought in five years ago, around the hair out of the valley of the Forgotten – as it was in fact about the 2009 newly designed space at the Terminus Wollishofen to give a name suggested to the district Association, the variant of the Walter-Alvares-cellar-place; the city then decided to be pragmatic for wollishofer place. The hope is that one day a young man taken in front of this plaque is, decides to devote the life of the fiction remains, and this intention later, impressive deeds.

The weekly column "building zone" is dedicated to the many unusual, exciting, ugly, or somehow slanted houses that are everywhere in the Canton of Zurich. All of the about a hundred previously published articles, you will find a construction zone (Tages-Anzeiger)
