>"x" Marx the spot – #431

Bad-Kreuznach – about 30 minutes from Mainz and where I’ve been incarcerated for the past 3 weeks – has some fascinating sons and daughters.

Eberhard Anheuser, who went on to make Milwaukee famous

Johann Faust, the alchemist on whom the Faust tale is said to be based.

Marcel Proust visited the town with his mother in 1895. (What a nice lad…)

Frank the Potter was christened in the church of St Paul, pictured above

And Karl Marx married Jenny von Westphalen in the same church a couple of years earlier.

1843, to be precise
