Engraving showing a locomotive crosing a bridge over the Neckar River, having just left a railway tunnel. Above the tunnel mouth Rosenstein Palace, built near Stuttgart in Germany for King Wilhelm I von Wurttemberg, can be seen. Built between 1824 and 1829, Rosenstein Palace was designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Salucci and was formally opened in May 1830. The house was built over a single story and features three columned porticoes. Gutted by fire in 1844, the palace was subsequently turned into an exhibition space for the German State Museum for National History. Published by A Becher, Stuttgart.
