Continental Tyres – Hannover

We got to this well known site just in time – demolition was about to start.

Continental Tyres is a big employer in Hanover but this huge factory was no longer economical when it was closed down in 1999 after construction started in 1862.

Far more interesting for me was the beautiful image (below) of a stand alone inhabited building nearby on a busy street. Very unusual to see this kind scene in the Western part of Germany these days.
