Re: chat about a "strange addresss in Wurzburg" #germany

"Robert Winter thinks that there were buildings with two entrances and
this probably indicated which entrance it was. In some addresses it
is written "a.o." after the number. He thinks a.o. stands for' ab ovo'
- >from the very beginning or 'ausserordentlich' - exceptional."
In my opinion we can exclude the latin "ab ovo". And "auerordentlich"
doesn't make sense in my opinion."

My guess is that ao stands for 'auch oben' - also above; indicating that
the person occupied two floors.
