The architect’s plan for the Granary (building work starts in 1898)

In 1898, the agricultural cooperative in Einbeck builds a granary with financial support from a Prussian government initiative to boost storage capacity for cereals. It is a six-storey brick building with wooden beams and floors designed to hold around 1,000 tonnes of grain. The architects and builders are a local firm called Schramm.
