Photographer's Note

Getreidegasse 9, better known as Mozart's birthplace. The Mozart family lived on the 3rd floor from 1747 to 1773, and it is where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on Jan 27, 1756. He would become one of the worlds most famous musicians, writing his first symphony at age 8. He would die at the young age of 35 (many question how), but by then, he had already composed over 600 pieces of music. This building here has since been converted into a museam housing manuscripts, portraits, and many of his instruments.

I will include a picture of the other side of the building as a workshop. Image has not been altered other than adjustment of sharpness after it was scanned and minimal cropping.
