Q: uplaoding a Tiff photo

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Public services in Germany (like snailmail, telecom, the railways) used to be reliable and affordable if somewhat bureaucratic and overregulated. Well, privatization and public sellout put an end to both over-regulation and reliability.

This, by the way, is the logo of German mail, enhanced by a red dot I don't know the purpose of.

    it looks like a target to me, but the theory is that everything looks better in a circle

    If you look at the central area, made by three concentric circles, you can see the Royal air force logo.

    Could be a "price" that Germany had to pay after world war 2 (British have always been very proud about their mail service...).

    What a nice idea, Giovanni. But no, I don't think German mail is paying a tribute to the RAF here. It's probably just some administrative marker, indicating how often the mail should be collected at this mailbox or something.

    I think what it means: "Spread your legs and blow the horn" (please don't see it too seriously;-) great capture nevertheless

    That logo is supposed to be a posthorn, right?

    Indeed, Will.
