HoF Zollstraße – The tiny remnants in April

As reported, January started with the shock that HoF Zollstraße was flatened, except for a few meagre remains. And the demolition progresses.

HoF Borbeck in December

I recently was asked, why I ignore HoF Borbeck and of course, there is a reason, why I do not visit it frequently and that often as other legal walls in Essen. This time it’s not Corona (#FUCKCORONA), at least not only. HoF Borbeck is one of our halls of fame you have to ask […]

HoF Zollstraße in December

One thing is for sure – the change

Those who know this blog know, the change is a recurring theme here. Sometimes you win – sometimes you loose. What you get is something new, even if you haven’t asked for it. This time it’s more a loss; 04/2019 I have made the first picture of it and it was untouched since then. Now […]
