Dear Colleague, thanks. I went to Sieder in 1973 and saw them making fake things. They were in the same neighborhood as these other firms you mention, between the Naschmarkt and the Josefstadt or something, as I recall. I saw a fake Herman Goering peaked cap. Thanks for the link to Fa. Maurer. Such wonderful things still exist. Wien is such a marvelous place.
schoene Gruesse, Ihr, FB

Good evening, F.-B.
yes, "der siebte Hieb" and the adjacent ones once were the centre of such firms. There are not many left.
Thank you, ErWe, sir.
]The RZM branch stood next to Hotel Kummer, in fact, on the Maria Hilferstrasse. Zieglergasse is nearby to this address.
When I am in Wien, this is my neighborhood. I started out in the Pfeilgasse in 1973 and
moved slightly southward.
I hardly need add what other personage also frequented this area in another epoch.
He liked to go here, to dream of his future life in the art academy down the street.
To be viewed in connection with the above....
Guten Abend F.-B.,
I was immediately thinking of the person having lived in Meldemannstraße but this in the XXth district.
You are the historian, chapeau!
Did some research meanwhile: Meldeamt, what an irony!
Thank you again for Qualtinger. Wenn wir einen Augenblick von der Tragik des Hintergrundes des links absehen und einer typisch österreichischen Verharmlosung des Alkoholismus anheimfallen wollen, darf ich eine (unbewiesene) Zote, die sich im Café Bazar in Salzburg zugetragen haben soll, erzählen:
Qualtinger kommt hinein und bestellt: "Ein Achterl." Frage des Kellners: "Rot oder weiß?" Antwort: "An Sliwowitz!"
Sehr schoen. Danke.
Being married to a Slav, I also prefer such spirits, but all in very modest measure.
All of AH's locales are in the Brigitte Hamann book, Hitlers Wien, are they not?
