‘Augsburg – Ancient Homes of the Patricians’
This stereoview shows the view up Karolinenstraße in Augsburg. Until World War Two the street was lined with the Renassiance and Baroque houses of former patricians and merchants. The Renaissance town hall and Pelachturm, a 70m watchtower, can be seen to the left. Karolinenstraße was almost completely destroyed during World War Two. The tower and town hall have been reconstructed to their pre-war appearance but the street has retained little of its former historical character.
