Einstein on the street

urchins

The powers-that-be recently decided that what Bayerischer Platz underground station really needed was a multi-thousand euro installation explaining the (somewhat chequered) history of the neighborhood. As part of the glossy wall display, they included this picture of urchins, which off the top of my head I would guess was taken around the turn of the 20th century.

I decided that what this photograph really needed was the addition of one of Bayerischer Platz’s most famous former residents, Albert Einstein. Alas, the colour scheme of my photocopied Einstein didn’t quite match the background. But no one seems to mind; at the time of writing (one day after placing Alfred in position), he is still there.
