Just Hanging Around

Germany DE-3315941 received 07-14-2014

Sent by: Peko
From: Wuppertal, Germany
ID number: DE-3315941
Notes: Wuppertal is a city of over 340,000 people in western Germany.  It is known for the Wuppertal Schwebebahn, or the Wuppertall Suspension Railway.  It's an elevated electric railway, but instead of the cars riding on tracks along the ground, the cars are suspended from the tracks.  It began operation in 1901, and now carries about 82,000 people a day.  This photo of the Schwebebahnstation at Werther Brücke was taken by the sender, Peko.  He sells his self-produced cards to tourist shops in Wuppertal.  Very cool!
