In 1855, the Berlin printer Litfass came up with the notion of erecting advertising pillars on German street corners. For the citizens of early Swakopmund, they became a common source of information and advertising. The remaining example, Litfass-Saule , sits on the corner of Daniel Tjongarero and Nathaniel Maxulili.
