Romanian Firms of Sibiu in Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy: 1867-1918

Sibiu (also known as Hermannstadt or Nagyszeben) was a major economical, political and cultural centre of Transylvania during the Austrian-Hungarian Empire (1867-1918). More than fifty per cent out of its population was of German descent, as the town has got this tradition for centuries. About 5-10 per cent out of the firms were owned by Romanians. They were: shoe makers, tailors, furriers, carpenters, locksmiths, machinists, house painters, shop keepers. Out of the printed publicity in newspapers of Sibiu from the end of the nineteenth until the beginning of the twentiest century, one can learn the throb of the economic climate of those years.
