|The Silent Concierge
(or David and Lilly Miss You a Lot)
|Silent Concierges are a regular appearance in many halls of pre-war buildings in Berlin. They inform the visitor in which part of the building (front, courtyard, side-wings, left- or right-hand stairwells) and on what floor the person they want to visit can be found. The upper segment of such concierge's quite often lists the owner or estate agent responsible for the building. In some cases a special segment informs on where the nearest police or fire station can be found.
This Silent Concierge deals neither with a house nor with living persons, but with death.
