The " 11" is the best known paragraph in German "Bier-Comments" (Beer code), i.e. the jocular regulations of drinking beer in student pubs. It also appears in the traditions of the German craftsmen. It reads "Es wird fortgesoffen", freely translated with "Keep on drinking". Therefore " 11" often appears on funny photographs around the turn of the century.
