"By the end of the 19th century two different kinds of allotment gardens had developed (Brando 1965: 12-19, Groening 1974: 9-15, Goettlicher 1981: 16-17). One had emerged as a concomitant of industrial development in large cities during the last decades of the 19th century. This Laubengarten", was proletarian and had to serve primarily to secure survival. Some years earlier and under completely different economic and historical circumstances the 'Schrebergarten" of Leipzig had come into existence. It was a type of allotment garden with a solid infrastructure for all gardens and the community of the garden tenants. The founders of allotment gardens elsewhere, for example at Breslau, Silesia, refered to the Schrebergarten' idea in Leipzig (Dannenberg 1901: 118-119). The location, the infrastructure, and the rents point to relatively wealthy tenants. The design of the individual gardens shows similarities to contemporary designs for house and villa gardens (Hampel 19022: 1). Such lots were good for amateur gardening and leisurly pursuit. In Stettin petty bourgeois and bourgeois people (teachers and public servants) had rented the gardens (Schulze 1909: 61-66)."
