Bahnhof Eger
Los 4044

Ergebnis (inkl. Aufgeld) *
1.116€ (US$ 1,094)

Details

Photographer: JohannTheodor Meier. Bahnhof Eger. June 19, 1866. Albumen print with rounded corners. 14 x 30 cm. Mounted to original board (traces of use, strong vertical crease in left side, soiled), with gilt title and date printed below the image on the mount.
The location and date "Bahnhof Eger am 19. Juni 1866" is printed in gilt letters below the image on the mount. On this day Prussia declared war against Austria and its federal troops. The direct cause was the mobilization, by the Bundestag in Frankfurt, under the leadership of Austria. The railroad station at Eger was obviously one of the most important railroad junctions for troop transports towards Königgrätz and other war locations. In this image one can see over 30 locomotives and a large number of wagons on 6 or 7 rails ready for departure. The importance of railroads was quickly recognized by Prussia after the American Civil War of 1861/65, where for the first time the crucial role of railroads in the rapid transport of troops had been clearly demonstrated. Such an early German photograph that so keenly demonstrates the importance of the railroad during the war is extremely rare.
– Some scuff marks and surface soiling, stronger verticle crease in left side, otherwise in good condition.
