Re: Show me your neighbourhood (especially if it's not famous!)

I thought I posted my neighborhood, but it seems to have gone missing.

It may have doubled up as a lawn mower.

Höngg in 1956 ! Amazing. Well, at that time I just started Kindergarten. And well, the "National Flag" of Wollishofen went lost in my post and you failed to show the one of Höngg ... here they are

WOLLISHOFEN





HöNGG




and while indeed not only does Höngg (stilll) have good wines while the sour ones of Wollishofen
disappeared long ago, and Höngg does have a spectacularily beautiful flag, the flag of Wollishofen
is easy to paint for any pupil and so is far more practical

Re: Show me your neighbourhood (especially if it's not famous!)

These are so cool. Thanks so much to everyone who has shared their pictures!

Since we're talking about Höngg, which happens to be my neighborhood:
