|Old-Friedmannsdorf: the picture was taken between 1915 and 1920. It shows the farmer Johann Nikol Tröger together with his two sisters Anna and Henriette. Troegers Nickl has been - just as his son Max was later - mayor of Friedmannsdorf. The Tröger family is one of the oldest, may-be even the oldest family in the village of Friedmannsdorf, which today belongs to the township of Zell.
