A Long Time

A Long Time

84-year-old Emma Rossmann stands behind her assortment of garden gnomes in the window of her “Dippemarkt” shop in Frankfurt, Sep.20. For over 40 years she has been selling stoneware, Black Forest clocks (in the background), “Bembels”, the city’s typical mugs with clay handles used for cider, and garden gnomes. By the way, I learned that garden or lawn gnomes as we know them appeared first in Germany in the mid 1800s.
