Franz Xaver Schumacher
Pictorial Map of Lucerne, 1792
Detail of engraving showing the Rossligasse and part of the Hirschenplatz.
This edition of the map was published in 1792, but it appears to show the Goldener Adler building before its remodelling in 1786. It looks very much as if the ‘Diving Dolphins’ carving originally formed part of the doorway.
