Lindenau Werft was a shipyard founded in Memel (that's Klaipeda, to the Germans) in 1919. They fled Memel for Kiel in the mid-1940s, before the Soviet army arrived.
I guess they built ships and manhole covers?
Below, from Riga.
I can't find a website that explains what those words are in English.
This one celebrates Riga's 800th Anniversary (I think that's a little boat with a sail that says "Riga 800") in 2001.
Well, on that note, I guess we'll head back to the other blog--The New Miltons. See you there.
Thanks for reading.

But not before my class
could have some fun and games.
playing "Do you love your neighbor?" with Ellen's class on the last morning.
Then we all went off to the closing ceremony to say our various goodbyes.
We shook every person's hand and said goodbye.
Farewell from Klaipeda. I'll "see you" again when we return home to Tacoma.
Thanks for a wonderful 3 weeks.
