When Is a Pound Not a Pound?

When Is a Pound Not a Pound

Here is the beautiful store of the Gebrüder Pfund Mölkerei in Dresden, Germany. Translated into English that would be the Pound Brothers Dairy, an establishment with a proud and varied history. This dairy was begun generations back in the German side of my family and it became famous and prosperous. World War II. Dresden was bombed, and then the Russians took over. The dairy became the property of the state. That was its status when I visited there in 1971. I did meet my cousin Leonore Pfund and one of her sons who worked at the dairy. Once the wall came down things changed. I had assumed that ownership had reverted back to the original owners, and in fact, it did. I just learned though that that is not the end of the story. There were several shareholders and an investor interested in buying. The majority voted in favor of selling and agreed that the name of the establishment would remain Gebrüder Pfund Mölkerei. So the Pound Dairy is alive and well, but it no longer belongs to the Pound family. Therefore, a Pound is no longer a Pound. And I have decided that Dresden will not be a part of my itinerary this summer, and that’s OK, because I have a full menu of activities already.
