Altstadt-Lehel, Munich

When this building of the “Bayerische Hypotheken- und Wechselbank” was constructed in 1895, ‘sex sells’ was probably not the leading paradigm of business, instead statues of naked men and women where used as pointers to the famous greek past – Munich has a clearly philhellenic tradition, which might just have subsided a bit nowadays. We usually prefer to sell luxury cars to the Greek to paying for their debths.
