  Iron stump - an old message wall :)
by MedioLatino

The original iron stump was a way for apprentices to leave behind a mark about the time they spent around or to express their feelings in a escret way. They just hammered a nail into it to leave their "message".

This iron stump is a copy of the original one, which was made in the 19th century and was there through more then 100 years.

You can find it on the corner of Iskola street and Vam street in the 1st district, under the Castle hill, close to Batthyany square.
