And now for another “man about town” as I showed yesterday. This popular image you will find at nearly all U-bahn stations and underpasses around town. I took the photo because I was sure there was a good story behind this retro-looking symbol – complete with the hat, suit and complimentary swagger. Yet I’ve looked and looked and can’t find any details about who designed it, how it was adopted as standard signage, what timeframe it’s from (my bet would be 40s to 50s, but that’s based upon an American’s perspective, not German), and possibly most important of all – does he have a great German name. If you know of any details, please fill me in.
