Date Added: 07 April 2018

This is a scene of the City of Danzig around 1870. It shows several ships anchored in the harbor. Along the waterfront where the grain exchange is located there are many high rise buildings in many colors and with very detailed features. Danzig is one of the oldest cities in Poland. Founded by the Polish ruler Mieszko I in the 10th century, the city was for a long time part of Piast state either directly or as a fief. In 1308 the city became part of the Monastic State of the Teutonic Knights until the 15th century. Thereafter it became part of Poland again, although with increasing autonomy. A vital naval city for Polish grain trade it attracted people from all over the European continent, including Germans and Scots. The city was taken over by Prussia during the Second Partition of Poland in 1793 and subsequently lost its importance as a trading port. In 1871 the city was included in the newly created German Empire.
