Danube- Main Canal, Map on a tobacco packet of the firm Schwarz and Co, December 15, 1835

Object Description

At almost exactly the same time as the first railway was beginning in Germany, this firm advertised the building of the Main-Danube Canal, which would begin the following years, and would be completd as the "Ludwigskanal" in 1846. It soon became uneconomical and could not compete with the railways.
