A city diorama from around 1900 in microscale.
About this creation
This is the third part of an ongoing project which follows a patch of land through the ages. Each model shows typical buildings of the time.

The castle of the top of the hill still stands. As a tourist attraction it is probably in better shape than it ever was as a fortification.



A new bridge spans the river. It is a modern build, but the rise of the automobile will soon make it a bottleneck of the city's travel once again.



The cathedral is no longer in the center of the growing city as the hill proved a natural limit to the city's expansion.



Over the course of the last 50 years this left the cathedral, the old market and the town hall at the outskirts of the town.



The row houses are of recent origin, though, replacing a quarter near the old graveyard that was seriously damaged by a raging fire.



What used to be a private mansion of a rich ship owner, is now a museum dedicated to local history. The surrounding park may be freely visited by locals and tourists alike. In the greenhouse some rare plants are displayed.



The invention of the railroad has changed the face of the city significantly. A train station was built where the old monastry had fallen into disrepair long ago.



The port is currently at its limits. Large ships may still enter it, but it has become clear that even the recent improvements might not last forever. Luckily the railway seems to take much load that was previously handled by ships.



The design of the train has made it into my train station vignette, albeit with a much simple building.
