Reconstruction of the Old Askren Manor Housing, Schweinfurt, Germany, May 2020

Thomas L., a Schweinfurt resident, who had recently purchased House 460 in the former Askren Manor housing, sent me the following photos to share with you. These have been taken this month, May 2020.

The End of Askren Manor Housing, Schweinfurt, in 2018

It’s spring 2020 by now, and while sorting through my digital archives, I ran across these images, taken of the former Askren Manor housing in Schweinfurt, Germany in 2018.

Two years ago, the photographer Thomas Liepold shared these images with me, and finally today, I make use of his permission to share them here with you.

I appreciate your valuable memories.

Ledward Barracks, Schweinfurt goes Educational with iCampus

We usually pass by Ledward Barracks twice a year. This latest update is with photos taken on 20 April 2019.

Here we are approaching the corner of Niederwerrner Straße and Franz-Schubert-Straße, and there it is, the new iCampus under construction.

For a closer view, we’re turning into Franz-Schubert-Straße.

This iCampus is being built in the Carus-Park, which is the new name for the former Ledward Barracks area. For more information about the Carus-Park in German, visit iCampus Schweinfurt.

Tank Trail next to Ledward Barracks, Schweinfurt, Germany

We spent the past couple of days, Good Friday and Good Saturday, in the Schweinfurt area, and arrived at Ledward Barracks on our way to the village of Hambach. We turned into tank tail road heading to ‘Yorktown’, but had forgotten the road is sealed off for regular traffic. Which wasn’t always the case 30+ years ago…

This corner of Ledward Barracks still looks untouched.

Heading towards Kessler Field. It was a gorgeous day to be out and about.

In the late 1980s, the building on the right was part of an infantry battalion.

Soon after this part of Ledward, we had to turn around to get back onto Niederwerrner Straße. These buildings appear to have been part of the motor pool.

This is an update on the current works at Ledward Barracks. This part hasn’t changed much, as far as I can see. But in my next post, I will take you around the other side of Ledward Barracks.

I hope you’re buckled in for this ride.

Aerial Views over Askren Manor and Ledward Barracks, Schweinfurt

These photos of Akren Manor and Ledward Barracks have been given to me by the photographer, Thomas Liepert, and are now published with his friendly permission.

The first three photos were taken by Thomas taking a ride on the Ferris Wheel at the annual Volksfest (01 – 11 June 2018).

 

 

The following photos were taken around the same time, but obviously closer to the ground.
