Our German Page

Posted on

In 1870, the sanitary conditions in Berlin were among the worst in Europe. August Bebel recalled conditions before a modern sewer system was built in the late 1870s:

“Waste-water from the houses collected in the gutters running alongside the curbs and emitted a truly fearsome smell. There were no public toilets in the streets or squares. Visitors, especially women, often became desperate when nature called. In the public buildings the sanitary facilities were unbelievably primitive….As a metropolis; Berlin did not emerge from a state of barbarism into civilization until after 1870.”

  1. I think that everything published was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    what if you were to create a awesome post title?

    I am not suggesting your information is not solid.,
    however suppose you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Our German Page – Caecci is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to get people
    to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to
    get people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your posts
    a little bit more interesting.

    1. Thanks a lot for your views, very interesting and we are still working on the site. We would improve on it. However, fill free to join and make your impact with the environment.
