Dresden 1754

A higher resolution scan of the map. - 621813 bytes

This is a 1754 map that depicts both Altstadt (Old Town) on the left and Neustadt (New Town) on the right. The "suburbs" show as destroyed, and for this reason I suspect that this was after the Seven Years' War (1756 - 1763) induced damage.

This map is not north oriented, and the points of the compass rose do not seem to be aligned with the four points of the compass. North is roughly the right side of the map.

Additional images of fortification remnants can be found on the places page.
