Pharmacies Signs

Pharmacy house sign in Knittelfeld

Two lions in a pharmacy house sign

This house sign was created by two Italian migrant workers and renewed in 1957 by Alfred Kala. You can see it at the town pharmacy in Knittelfeld. I love the combination of lions with a mortar and pestle. The lions look a bit weird anyway. The lions, however, do not look particularly trustworthy for their job as a pharmacist.

In May 2008 I discovered at the market place of the small Moravian town Uherský Brod an old pharmacy with a fascinating façade and a beautiful fountain in front of it.
