New Real Estate Wars?
Especially BC (before cars) the closeness of thoroughfares with trams, horse drawn, later electric, was a most decisive factor where to rent/buy/live for easy access to work. Of course, old and older tunnels and settlements lie beneath today's cities and are constantly being unearthed as we dig deeper into the ground to make room for parking garages,
foundation of a museum in Frankfurt, underground railroads, highway tunnels, etc.
And in the case of cemetery plots, some are rented out for 10 years. Did one default on the rent, it went to the next renter until the lot was filled with the specified number of caskets and urns permitted! And the 'dearly departed' ended up in ossuaries, some beautifully decorated.
So you see, chers readers, the battle for space for the living and the dead has been going on for quite some time.
