Annotation

These figures stand at an historic location. Here, the city's markets have been held since time immemorial. The life of the city focused on the marketplace. Her you could here the latest news. On this historical site the latest gossip between farmer's women and local women is presented. The finer lady wearing the Rotenburg costume. The dog smelled probably a fresh sausage in the basket. The market woman with headscarf in typical smock looks with intrest at the two gossiping women.
