old school

This is the old "Lateinschule" (grammar school) at Trarbach, Mosel, Germany:




I've just found out that two of my ancestors were teachers there, namely Johann Jacob Ebner from 1686 till 1708, and his son Philip Nicolaus Ebner from 1708 to 1720. Both had the title "conrector", meaning they were qualified to teach the final year students, preparing them for university.

A short history of the school (in German) is here.
