Thanks to Atlas Obscura for the leechwell article. I was unaware of the “threes” repetition and will add it to my collections found at http:///
Another article can be written involving another ensemble of threes: If you happen to be a tour guide, it’s very easy to memorize the facts about the Church of the Trinity in Waldassen, Germany. Since it has 3 towers & 3 turrets, each turret with 3 dormer windows; 3 rook with 3 openings in each; 3 windows & 3 doors in each part of the structure; 3 large & 3 small crosses; 3 altars & 3 staircases; 3 doorways & 3 columns; 3 lights & 3 niches; 3 bays & 3 windows in each bay; 3 statues of the Virgin Mary; The designer was George Dientzhofer, the 3rd architect in his family; The church took exactly 33 months, 333 weeks, & 33 days to build; It cost 33,333 florins & 33 kreuzer. This particular example can be found as part of a larger list of “threes” at: Threesology Research Journal. In addition, Atlas Obscura might well consider placing the and its compatriot threes listings as a topic for a future article. The “realm of threes research” fits well with the “Obscura” theme.
