hol kohlen! get coals!
this is from berlin schöneberg and it’s of course actually holZ & kohlen (wood & coals) but somehow the Z and the ampersand* have gone astray. and probably the coal merchant, too.
*it could of course have been a ‘+’ or a ‘u.’ (for ‘und’) instead of an ampersand. but i really like the word ampersand, so i stick with it :)
