With its focus on grand architecture, gardens, and broad boulevards and squares, this panorama introduces Berlin as the royal seat; the smokestacks in the background only provide an inkling of the city's industrial capacities. “Panorama of Berlin seen from the Royal Palace,” drawing and lithograph by Ferdinand von Laer, c. 1840.
