Market Place in 1845

The Landesbibliothek (state library) has an exhibition with old paintings from Wiesbaden in its foyer at the moment. This photo is taken from a painting by G. Barnard from 1845. It shows the market place, the former city hall (on the left; it hosts the civil registry office nowadays), a clock tower (that doesn't exist anymore) and the castle on the right.

Tomorrow, I'll show the market place how it looks like nowadays.

Yes, lovely painting, but such great difference between what was and what is now market in Wiesbaden.

My city was undeveloped land in 1845. Still might make a pretty painting though. =)
