Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 17
There are other once-German towns in this part of Romania. Here's Medias, half-Saxon a century ago. The building in the foreground is labelled Zur Spinnerin, the German word for thread or yarn spinner. The oddest thing in the picture, however, is the Church of St. Margaret's tower--the Trumpeter's Tower--juxtaposed against a gate tower with a wooden defensive balcony. Both are from the 16th century, when the Turks were a threat. We'll see lots more like that gate tower.
