Geocache Description:

(Wytwórnia Adolf Witt i syn)

PL:

Historia rodziny Wittów zaczyna sie w dalekiej Francji, skad pochodzil zlotnik Napoleona, a dziadek zalozyciela fabryki przy ul.Emilii Plater(d.Lepopoldyny). Zaklad powstal pod koniec XIXwieku. Poprzednia odlewnia zalozona przez ojca Adolfa znajdowala sie przy ul.Elektoralnej. W zakladzie produkowano armature lazienkowa, kotly parowe, wanny, piece kapielowe miedziane (do podgrzewania wody) oraz naczynia kuchenne. Wyrabiano równiez aparaty do destylacji, sterylizacji i kuchnie parowe. Zaklad funkcjonowal dosc preznie do wybuchu drugiej wojny swiatowej. Po wojnie upanstwowiony, ale nadal uzytkowany (uslugi). Kiedys na jego tylach znajdowaly sie ogrody. Pobliska kamienica nalezala równiez do rodziny Wittów, jakis czas temu udalo sie ja odzykac spadkobiecrom i wyremontowac. Polecam zwlaszcza odestaurowany napis na bocznej scianie kamienicy. Przyjrzyjcie sie równiez kominowi, sa na nim inicjaly zalozyciela.

Do fabryki jest dobudowany nowszy budynek, czesciowo zagospodarowany. W parterze od paru lat miesci sie sympatyczna knajpka. Od frontu niestety jest parking, ale paradoksalnie ulatwia to zdobycie kesza.

Zainteresowanych sama fabryka odsylam do zródla czyli KATALOGU POSTINDUSTRIALNEGO.

Kordy podane mniej wiecej, ale jesli znajdziecie serduszko i wykrzyknik to jestescie w domu :)

EN:

Witt family history begins in distant France, whence it was Napoleon's goldsmith, and the grandfather of the founder of the factory at Emilii Plater street. The factory was founded in the late nineteenth century. Produced here copper bathroom fittings, boilers, bathtubs, stoves, copper bath (to heat the water) and kitchen utensils. Were made also to the distillation and sterilization apparatus. Once the factories were back gardens. A nearby house also belonged to the Witt family.
I recommend restored the inscription on the side wall of the building. Take a look at the chimney, are the initials of the founder.

To the factory was added is a newer building, partially landscaped. The ground floor housed a few years, nice cafe.

Cords more or less, but if you find an exclamation point and big heart - you are at home :)
