When hard work begins to be romanticized, the peak of its importance to society has usually been passed. Today we are impressed by the perfect functionality of the old mills, which form a particularly beautiful and aesthetically appealing example of landscape-bound and landscape-appropriate anonymous architecture, just as the old devices made of wood and stone can sometimes almost seem like art objects. Many intact mills still exist in landscapes whose underdevelopment has necessarily saved them from the demolition and modernization frenzy.
Gerhard Trumler shows a world that has fallen under the wheels. Under the wheels of mechanization and motorization. A world that perhaps only exists for a short moment, a quiet moment. Trumler's photographs depict the melancholy of decay and the beauty of such old buildings and equipment; But they are also a call to all of us to save what can still be saved, to revive where it is still possible. This book is a compendium in which all of Austria's known old mills are documented, which were published by the author in 2012 were found until 2014.
This is the most comprehensive compilation of all old mills in this area
