Schlossplatz

 

The largest city square in Stuttgart, with the Jubiläumssäule (anniversary) column.  The figure on the top is the Roman goddess Concordia.

Oh, you have been in Stuttgart! We need now Concordia to get finally a solid coalition in our politics.
Tom Wilson: Ah, you missed yesterday's picture smile It seems that concord may have been reached - at least pro tem! I was only there for a couple of days, giving a workshop at the university.

You are making Stuttgart look delightful Tom. I think I want to go there..
Tom Wilson: It's a very attractive city, Chris. Worth a visit.
The goddess of Harmony

We could do with some of that grin
Tom Wilson: We could indeed, Bill - but with demagogues like Farage around, it's going to be difficult.

Well it makes a change from seeing some ‘heroic’ military or so-called royal chap on a stick.
Tom Wilson: It does indeed!
A very impressive statue, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed.
A good place to sit and take in the splendid surrounds
Tom Wilson: Absolutely!
superbe endroit!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: It is indeed, Jean Pierre - merci!
Easy to find your way back.
Tom Wilson: An almost impossible to forget landmark!
I do remember this area of the city, and the tall column there.
Tom Wilson: It's the kind of location that will impress upon your memory, Brian.
relaxing among the statuary...
Tom Wilson: In a very civilized fashion!
Just looked back at my archive Tom, I said I thought I'd been to this place and this is what I posted back in 2013 http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/image/2013/05/22/stuttgart--schlossplatz--24/
