Here's Leipzig Germany back in 1905,

If you ever find yourself traveling back in time and find yourself on the streets of Leipzig back in 11905, you'll be able to navigate your way around the city with grace and ease!

This fine map is illustrated in yummy soft pastel colors; all done in those gorgeous shades of Carnation Pinks, Aqua blues and Poppy Reds that early mapmakers loved so much, with lettering done in German all in a beautiful Gutenburg calligraphy text.

'1905 Map Of Leipzig Germany” is printed on heavy paper stock and is in wonderful antique shape; the 9." x 7.75" paper in smooth and clean condition, without tanning, wrinkles, foxing or flaw. It;s folded neatly as it was when it was issued 106 years ago. Also included is an amazy 2 page "key to the city of Leipzig; a fascinating laundry list of all the Universities, Churches, symphony Halls, Electricity Generating Stations, Museums, Train Stations, Municipal Buildings, Parks, Markets, Public Gardens, Hospitals, Laboratories, Libraries, Synagogs and tons of other city attractions from Edwardian Era Germany at the turn of the Twentieth Century. This one's a real gem.

A bit of Leipzig history:
Leipzig is, with it's current population of appr. 525,000, the largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany and in the new states of Germany. It is situated at the confluence of the rivers Weisse Elster, Pleisse and Parthe in the Leipzig Bay.

In the 17th century, Leipzig was one of the major European city-centers of learning and culture in fields such as music, astronomy and optics. After World War II, Leipzig became a major urban center within the Communist German Democratic Republic.

Leipzig later played a significant role in the fall of communism in Eastern Germany, through events taken place in and around St. Nikolai Church. Since the Reunification of Germany, Leipzig has undergone significant change with the restoration of historical buildings and the development of a modern transport infrastructure
