Frihedsstøtten 

Oprindelig blev Frihedsstøtten opført udenfor bymurerne. Monumentet blev rejst i anledning af stavnsbåndets ophævelse fra 1788 til 1800. (Stavnsbånd bandt mænd mellem 14 og 36 år til at blive boende på det gods eller herregård, hvor de var født. 

Frihedsstøtten lå på en runddel på den befærdede landevej, der førte ind til Vesterport stod omkranset af træer, og bønderne fra omegnens landsbyer og de vesterbroske slagtere passerede monumentet, når de skulle ind og sælge deres varer på de københavnske torvepladser. 

Mange af gadens brugere kom længere vejs fra, og mens de holdt i kø for at betale afgift for de varer, de bragte med sig gennem byens porte, var der god tid til at falde i snak og spendere penge ved boder og udskænkningssteder langs vejen. Også når markedsdagen sluttede, og bønderne begav sig hjem, var der rig lejlighed til at bruge nogle af de indtjente penge på Vesterbros forlystelser. Her lå en del af forklaringen på kvarterets tidlige vækst. En anden forklaring var etableringen af et marked for levende dyr og dertilhørende slagtere i forbindelse med, at slagteri blev forbudt inden for byens volde i slutningen af 1500-tallet.

 

Statue of Liberty

Originally, the statue of Liberty (1788-1800) was erected outside the city walls. The monument was erected to mark the abolition of a rule that tied men between 14 and 36 years to remain in the farm or mansion, where they were born. 

The Liberty was on a roundabout on the busy road that led to the Western accessport to København, and stood surrounded by trees. The farmers from the surrounding villages and the vesterbroske butchers passed the monument when they were in and sell their goods at the Copenhagen squares.

Many of the street's users came a long way, and while they kept in line to pay tax on the goods they brought with them, there was plenty of time to fall into conversation and spend money at the stalls and outlets along the way. Also when market day ended, and the peasants went home, there was ample opportunity to use some of the money earned on Vesterbro entertainment. It was part of the explanation for the neighborhood's early growth. Another explanation was the establishment of a market for live animals and related butchers in connection with the slaughter was banned within the city ramparts in the late 1500s.
