The Diemurser Bridge belongs to this picturesque old quarter of Hamburg through which small barges travel on the dirty water amongst the boats moored here and there.

View of the Alster. - The Alster is divided into two parts by the bridge of the Lombards. In the foreground, the Aussen-Alster, further, the Binnen-Alster. The brightest and most beautiful part of the city is the Binnen-Alster. On its banks, especially on the Jungfernstieg, walks an elegant and cosmopolitan crowd.

The Elbstrasse is one of the busiest shopping streets in Hamburg. Here one is aware of the movement of business of one of the most important ports in the world.

The swimming pond. - Amid the intense animation of many ponds that constitute the great port of Hamburg, the incessant movement of steamers, boats and yachts, it is a curious sight to see the antics of the many swimmers in the frothing Elbe.

Hamburg. - Perpendicular to the docks covered with warehouses, cranes, trucks, railways, etc., one sees narrow streets interspersed with canals with muddy water. This is the area of the "Fleth."
