1896 advert for the inauguration of the Nord Express. My source claims that one can recognise St Petersburg (top, clearly), Berlin (bottom - the Brandenburg Gate) and London (by elimiination, the middle view). Well I'd love to know where in London that is!

The ad is for the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits et des Grands Express Européens and describes the route London - Ostende - Brussels - Paris - Berlin - St Petersburg.
