Advertising Column with Votivkirche

Advertising Column with Votivkirche

These advertising columns have an interesting history – apparently some of them had secret doors that opened to the underground network of sewers and passageways in which many poor people actually lived around the turn of the 20th century! Much like the famous sewers of Paris – they were a miserable refuge in a time where there were few places of shelter.
