City Views #62: Odds’n’Ends III

This is really an odd end: Mülheim’s Eduardstrasse, where our family has lived for now over sixty years, is only a little over 250 meters long, but it’s north end is just a wall with a steep drop of about ten meters on the other side. I took this photo only a couple of weeks ago from the “other side” of the wall, down on the Dickswall – if there was a ramp or a couple of stairs to go up, I would be home in just a minute, but I actually have to go the long way around to reach the street. I still don’t know exactly how this curious bit of geography came about, but it’s possible that there were once houses standing there. The white-ish house corner on the left actually belongs to the block of houses we live in.
