Village Structures that Hint of the Past

Photos by Kathy

An excursion with camera through Ockfen, Oberzerf, Irsch, and Beurig highlights a few of the old buildings.  Some hide their simple underpinnings, others show the original walls with the miscellaneous materials, mostly very poor, which kept the structures together until this day.
