A milestone


These old milestones are seen in many places in Copenhagen. This one I found in Christianshavn just where the old gate to Amager stood, the so-called Southern Gate or Amager Gate. It shows the distance to various villages on Amager such as Dragør and St. Magleby. Even though they don't have much function today it's nice to be reminded that 11 km was a long trip in the old days when on foot or by ox cart.
