290303 View of the railway Fürth-Nürnberg. 4 horizontal stripes: at the top, the train goes from the left to the right, at the bottom the other way round. On the 2 middle stripes, in parallel - in the true sense of the word - to the new means of trnasport, the author shows the view from the train: houses, trees, country & city people, riders, coach & horse & cart. Printed in gold on multicolored paper. Back: Plain. Maker: Johann Lechner, Fürth (?) 351x432 mm. c1836.
