Building Site Hauptmarkt (Main Market Square)

um 1956

The view of the illustrator goes from the south side of the Main Market Square (Hauptmarkt) north in the direction of St. Sebald´s Church and City-Hall, which has already been completed. The building crane dominates the picture. The cobblestones, typical for the Nuremberg Old City, seem to be lacking yet. On the south side there is a big new building being built whose foundations only just have been laid. The repair works on Frauenkirche (Our Lady´s Church) seem to be completed on the outside. A stenographic sketch, jotted down en-passant.
