Cabinet card is very clean and intact with minimal age wear and two pieces of tape on back. A fine copy. This is a beautiful photograph that shows a view looking straight at the Cathedral Bridge (German: Dombrucke), a foot- and railway bridge that once spanned the Rhine in Cologne. The bridge was built in 1859 but closed in 1908 due to an increase in traffic. It was replaced with the Hohenzollern Bridge in 1911. Also in the picture are an equestrian statue of Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia, which was moved to the east bank of the Rhine after the bridge's deconstruction, and people walking on the bridge. "Koln" (Cologne) is printed at the top. Rest of title printed beneath photograph. "Verlag v. Rommler & Jonas, K. S. Hof-Photogr., Dresden, 1892" printed at the bottom. Rommler & Jonas was a German art print shop and publishing company that was co-founded in 1871 by Emil Rommler (1842-1941), a photographer, and Leopold Erasmus Jonas (1839-?), an accountant. Rommler had received his photographic training from his father in Chemnitz and Joseph Albert in Munich. The company also employed other photographers and became well-known for its high-quality photographic prints called collotypes or albertypes that often depicted cityscapes. The company closed in 1945 during World War II.
