Casa Boker, Mexico City, ca. 2007


Mexico’s most important hardware store, Casa Boker, was founded in 1865 by Robert Böker of Remscheid. The business still exists today. In 1910, the store moved into this representative building in the heart of Mexico City. At the time of its construction, it was the most expensive commercial building in the city.
