M. Muller's ironworker 1910 Donated in 1918 during the WW1 German Reich.
Special statue with a history.
See video.
Impressive bronze statue by the famous Austrian sculptor Hans Müller (1873-1937). This signed bronze statue shows an iron worker trying to drag a heavy piece of iron with large pliers. Much attention was paid to detail, just one look at the intense impression of the workers' face makes you feel how hard this kind of work must have been. Also the artful way in which his entire outfit was formed shows the great skills of H. Müller, which can be found on the back.
Donated during WW1 in 1918 in honor of a 25th anniversary 1883-1918 see honor plate.

The Körting company was founded in Hannover on November 1, 1871 by the brothers Berthold and Ernst Körting.
The company grew rapidly and within a few years established proxies in Germany and neighbouring European countries (London, Paris, Milan, Genoa, Barcelona, ​​Breslau (Wrocław), St. Petersburg, Vienna) and abroad (Philadelphia). The first foreign branch was established as "Körthing Brothers" in Manchester. The US branch opened in 1874. In 1880 the company had 20 employees and 170 workers.
The Körting vacuum brakes could also be found in many trains of the time. In 1889, a new, larger factory with a large foundry was to be built in Linden, where the firm's headquarters remains to this day. A working class town with a school was built in the immediate vicinity, the so-called "Körtingsdorf". At its peak before the Great Depression, Körting employed about 1,700 workers and 400 employees.
