Kolmanskop 10: Doctor’s house

This is the entrance to the Doctor’s house.

There were two resident doctors.

One of them was Dr. Kraenzle.

He had a strong belief in the use of a little wine or champagne to cure patients. Because of that the hospital had it’s own wine cellar.

The other doctor was Dr. von Lossow. He was a bone expert and an excellent surgeon and he had his own idea of how to increase the health of his patients.

Dr von Lossow had a strong belief in the use of onions and garlic and he lived as he taught.

So visiting him could be a challenge unless you took the doctor’s advice and (in self defence) ate a lot of onion and garlic before visiting the good doctor.

It has been many years without a doctor in the doctor’s house…
