I stumbled across this Toytown Wiki page a while back and wondered about Einstein in Munich. After visiting the special exhibit on Einstein at the Deutsches Museum, I was inspired to dig deep and update the wiki page.
I discovered some really interesting things like:
- Einstein's father's company was the first to provide electric lighting (instead of gas) to the Oktoberfest
- Einstein himself worked as an electrician's assistant cabling the Schottenhammel tent
And that the family first lived on the company premises in Müllerstrasse before moving to their well-known Adlzreiterstrasse address (and no, they never lived on Einsteinstrasse - though it is named for him).
What I couldn't find out was the address of the company. So, I thought, they registered patents, the address must be on the patent. However, you can only search patents from the 1880-1894 era if you know the number. I don't know any of those.
Your mission should you choose to accept:
Find patent numbers, or the address itself, for the company J. Einstein & Cie published probably by Jakob or Hermann Einstein between 1880 and 1894?
Good Luck and God Speed.
