Mercury Atop the ...?

The statue of Mercury atop the guard house that is near the main steps of the Artushof porch. From this angle, the Rathaus is in the background. Refer to Report #61, to see a clear photo of the area. Take a close look at the dome of the house at the right. . . Molded into the white metal are grapes and vines. Could this have been an outdoor refreshment stand at some point in its career? Are today’s Pepsi umbrellas an outg rowth of this tradition? As a matter of interest, the Artushof is now undergoing renovation.
