old machine hall

The roots of the old spinning mill on the Zschopau in Erdmannsdorf 

go back to the mid-1830s. 

From 1869 Arno & Moritz Meister AG took over this first spinning mill 

and continued production. 

By 1912, 4 more spinning mills were built in Erdmannsdorf 

and formed the backbone of the community. 

From the 1950s onwards, the spinning mill became public property 

and in 1961 it was affiliated with the "VEB cotton spinning mill Flöha". 

Cotton production is stopped in 1991 and the company shut down.




The panorama shows a production hall in the former 

"Bauwollspinnerei Erdmannsdorf", Straße der Befreiung 3 (now Chemnitzer Straße). 

The machines were probably purchased shortly before or after the fall of the Wall in 1990.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
