German Roentgen-Museum by bruni

German Roentgen-Museum

German mechanical engineer born in Lennep, Germany in 1845 - invented X-Rays in 1895. In 1901 he was awarded the first Nobel Prize for physics for his invention.

Lennep is a suburb of Remscheid where my husband was born and lived until he immigrated to Canada. In 2010 we went for a visit. at that time we did a bit of travelling and of course we also visited the Lennep Roentgen museum.

The house where Roentgen was born in Lennep has been lovingly restored and houses a large collection of specialized literature. It is in fact the library of the German Roentgen-Museum, which is only a step from his birthplace.

What a beautiful old house. It is interesting that you can enter the house from either side of the stairs. I wonder if it was the same reason for doing that in Charleston, SC? There it was said that it was to prevent the men from looking at the woman's ankles so the men took one side and the women the other. That kind of makes me laugh!

This is for you Suzie.!
I have a version too why some places had two entrance doors.
Here in Canada, in 1967 apparently the pubs still had two entrance doors from what my husband tells me. and this was before I knew him. the following happened before I new him. he tells me he used to go to a pup with one or two of his buddies and they would try to wait until some single women came and then asked them if they could go in with them. you see, couples were allowed in the women section. @stownsend

@bruni Very interesting to read about old customs. I think you and I would have quite a few if we just stopped and thought about some of the things we do today that were so different back in the day.
