A giant pair of, presumably, tramway horses on the approach to the bus station. A pity about the grit box! If there were another pair pulling on the sphere from the opposite direction you could have been forgiven for thinking that it represented von Guericke's Magdeburg Sphere experiment.

Being on Ipernity is a very steep learning curve! Now I know what Magdeburg Sphere refers to.

One of the few things I remember from physics (which I dropped before O Level).

I used to pass through Magdeburg two or three times per week on the British Military Train when I was posted in Berlin. Full of history, not least for being where my father was demobbed from as they were handing the city over to the Soviets. I often thought of the Magdeburg Sphere as we rattled through.
