Sudstrasse 63: Halle/Saale

The house that belonged to my mother's uncle & aunt, Adolph & Therese Pfifferling, Sudstrasse (South Road) 63, had been used as a day care center for seniors, etc. (It has been moved to a larger building)
This is only a few blocks where my mother lived, which was also where the Pfifferling brothers had their livestock business.
