In the second corona year, the wallenfels local history calendar is once again a bright spot in the pre-christmas season. Pictures from old times, pictures of people who today can laugh about their childhood photos and pictures that make you think, because they show the simple life of past decades.
All this can be found on the twelve calendar pages, provided with dates and short descriptions of the photos. The title "sue woas halt froo fe uus" can only be understood by a native of wallenfels.
And yet, even after the translation into "that's how it used to be here with us", you can immediately imagine that there are certainly many picture shadows hidden behind the individual pages of the calendar.
