Pattonville after the Termination of Garrison. The former DoD housing area Pattonville was incorporated into the townships of Remseck and Kornwestheim in 1993. (Overall withdrawal from the larger Stuttgart area in the mid 90ties: ca 10.000 members of the military forces or dependent persons. Remaining total ca 4.000.) - Best available figures.
Date(s): summer 2005. Photos by firstname.lastname@example.org. 1 - 49 of 49 Total. 1559 Visits.
1 Pattonville, before and after The new 'state cabin' street names are a compromise of sorts. Common yardsticks are hard to come by. (Middle East Peace Accord names were chosen for the Burgholzhof extension at Robinson Barracks.) Municipal boundaries in red.
2 Pattonville East side, some mirage licence
3 Pattonville East side
4 Pattonville Old core substance, blueprint hauntingly familiar. One building holds one company, old reckoning. Should have made aerial reconnaissance fairly easy at the time. The dormer windows are a standard feature. Favored lecture room location. (A spare key rather helpful if you need alternative sleeping quarters. Sometime adviseable.) "that's how I remember it." "That looks like our building, the third floor on Coblenz Road, 1975 to 1978" View Comments...
5 Pattonville Still old core substance but more thoroughly revamped. [For the billboard segue, see the building with the tractor in front.] "we lived at 1-c-2 Colmar drive. the BEST years of our family!! Miss seeing the Boyd family who lived at th..." View Comments...
6 Pattonville Core substance, fenced plots. The balconies will be a recent addition. The former Wehrmacht style did tend towards the austere.
7 Pattonville core substance, bicycles and barbecue grills are eternal
8 Pattonville Waiting for occupany. The farm tractor sports one of those drawing bridge type moving blades. All set up for a dandelion massacre.
9 Pattonville all bright and bushy tailed
10 Pattonville, chapel The chapel is still all denominational (within reason).
11 Pattonville Chapel front. Possibly still the old building number.
12 Pattonville Stylish streetlight. The birch leaves make always for a good backdrop. Animated with life even in a picture.
13 Pattonville, Elementary School No change in function. (Just a different set of teachers. The imprinted mind will survive it.)- The concrete looks hardly Panama Canal grade.
14 Pattonville, Elementary School
15 Pattonville Container banking. The old teller machines (different location) were completely dismantled.
16 Pattonville Under construction. There is always an unfinished phase IV.
17 Pattonville Under construction. The smell of wet concrete still pervades the area. - Probably picked that up from a third party brochure. As long as it is half way appropriate.
18 Pattonville Lombardy poplars. Propagated nearly exclusively by stem cuttings.
19 Pattonville building shell
20 Pattonville some kids see everything
21 Pattonville This one should ring a bell but I cannot quite make the connection.
22 Pattonville Brand new track and field facility. - I never found out if the old Pattonville had any swimming facilitis. Would certainly have been in the best Roman tradition. On the economy swimming somewhat out of character. "Back when i lived there ( late late 80's) there were no swimming facilities nearby. The only one i can rem..." "I lived in Pattonville between 1971 to 1974 and we did not have a pool.We went to Ludwigsburg and they had..." "lived there 63-65. Definitely no swimming pool. Fond memories of the community and the friends I made ther..." "I also lived there in the late 80's. No pool. Just elementary, middle, and high school, bowling, movie the..." "When I lived there 85-87 there was no pool. We did have the bowling alley and all that. I do remember goin..." View Comments...
23 Pattonville Superannuated Little League baseball and softball net. (Lack of enthusiasm either way may be forgiven. I was never very good at team sports.)
24 Pattonville Country Club. The sprawling golf course dotted with champignons. Might conceivably also be puffballs. There is an easy way to find out. (Some might call it the puffball shuffle.) "walked that course many times making a few bucks as a caddie" View Comments...
25 Pattonville Looks like the rear of a cinema (you just have to strip away all those encrouching 'lean-tos' and you will get there). - Map says High School auditorium, so be it. "that was the HS gym. Movie theatre was next block over." View Comments...
26 Pattonville High time somebody would teach those toothpaste folks from Proctor & Gamble how to spell. [Toothfairy truth: I should probably know how it feels.] There are some swallow nests under the roof overhang to the left. Those aerial acrobats probably share my own ignorance on rappers and their Quechua stage names. (The full form seems to mean 'fiery wyvern'.)
27 Pattonville Between duvet day and spring cleaning. Main thing, sun bagging. Either that or a keeled over snowman.
28 Pattonville Post APO era. The red bordered plaque right beneath the dead end street sign should indicate the distance to the next submersed hydrant in Cartesian shorthand. - [Do not know how you submerse fire hydrants after a handover. Maybe hydraulic.]
29 Pattonville The green bins are for bio-degradable skin of toad, yellow ones for cheese rinds and banana peels. Details in Macbeth.
30 Pattonville Mix of solar roof panels (left hand ) and hot water plumbing. Stars and Stripes shorthand: DoD goes 'Dudim'. (The name is derived from a special topknot type of hairdo for elderly ladies. Rather restricted usage, both name and hairdo. Somewhat country specific.)
31 Pattonville Closed high noon shutters. Would be careful with that balcony railing. Could be piping hot.
32 Pattonville - Kornwestheim Realtor's billboard. Only thing missing is a chandelier swinging Weissmueller. As for the price tag: How about 2 sq meter of berth space.
33 Pattonville various window shapes
34 Pattonville Bastogne Boulevard now JFK-Allee
35 Pattonville, JFK-Allee Using the tinted windows of a passing car as an impromptu Cokin filter. Thrifty if I say so.
36 Pattonville, JFK-Allee Where did all those school bus type shuttle buses go. ('Lazy hand' type front door opener, non hydraulic.) - Not every housing center did have its own PX so there was a fair amount of shuttle bussing.
37 Pattonville Veltheimia bracteata, orange pompom tassels, pitch hitting as seasonal palm tree. Both monocots. Supporting cast: Stonecrop and Carthusians.
38 Pattonville pedestrians
39 Pattonville Double your garage space. (How about gecko shoes. Double your living room space.)
40 Pattonville Looks like a leftover Arts n Craft shop project [do not like this pic technically, disrupted background, unequal lighting, but there is a hint of underlying humor. From armored vehicle to rackwagon. All it takes is a special kind of pixie dust. - A national rack wagon day - hard landing - is unlikely.]
41 Pattonville Carport with Polygonum aubertii (Russian Ivy). - Watch out or everything will be overgrown by the end of summer. Maybe the whole idea.
42 Pattonville and yet more carports, Remseck side
43 Pattonville Dish antenna with minimal vegetation clearance. Local 11-12 Ghz LNC. (Unsuitable for monsoon regions.)
44 Pattonville vaguely Rockwell
45 Pattonville Hanging Gardens. Compass plant, lower left hand corner, against a heat reverberating retainment wall. Should work out.
46 Pattonville carport lines, l'art-pour-l'art
47 Pattonville Xerophyte crawlspace
48 Pattonville brand new test tube buildings with Abu Dhabi flair
