Scratching blocks.....

Scratching posts.....

Back in the days of horse drawn carriages etc. it was common for the horses to kick and scratch the paintwork on the corner of some of the houses if they went around the corner too fast. Hence the introduction of scratching blocks, some of which are still in place today.

Best behaviour or else.....

Punishment for petty crime.....

In centuries gone by, if you committed any sort of petty crime in Schriesheim, your punishment might be to be chained up to this post on market day so that all the townspeople could see you and know that you had broken the law. If you enlarge the photo you will see the manacle and chain on the post.

Directions: Main street.
