  1. Good, Uncle did not remember very well the size of the bridge, voucher, and forgot the ALBOLAFIA, but otherwise I see no elements may be invented. And there's a tower in Ribera ride might be the only graphic representation of the by then dilapidated parish of St. Nicholas Axerquía. The Turret of the slangs, also went around, and had then gone.

    Certainly, beer invite to hang in high resolution painting Anton van der Wingaerde.

  2. Door, in the library of the Faculty of Arts is a book containing the views of cities that made Wyngaerde… I think the view of Cordoba is a drop of 3 pages, and comes in handy to get details of areas of the city, but is complicated digitize entire, albeit with a support and the same camera can be… me pilla pero ahora me to look pereza ir, although if you no hurry and I can do the favor, and we already have too.

    • No hurry, I have it at home inside the covers of a book, but did not know if anyone would have in digital format, because folds and such is a pain when consulting. Thanks anyway…

  3. In the fourth and first photo, Fujiyama has painted at the height of the Torrecilla. Of these only the middle gate bridge saved, Column Triomphe and the wall of the Mosque. The rest is invented. Well there was a stand of a consumer is looking to the right of Arc. Just kidding.

    I think these painters came here and never painted hearsay.

    In the third and fourth work has been Mosque block space Seminary, or moved the bridge to the Cross Trail. A pair of towers of the wall also loom, al final. El "Fujiyama", this time, I painted a little mop.

    • El Fujiyama, what good! There is a curious fact about these pictures that I have not reflected in the text because I felt that they had no rigor. And this is the date of completion. Some were dated 1880, Other in 1872. There is even a 1841 (I seemed to see) from which I could only locate its existence but I could not find in image. However, not rule out that the painter was in Córdoba. Your pictures are abundant in various Andalusian towns. But I've found so few biographical details about the author…

      Anyway Córdoba to see Canaletto style is not without its charm. Reflect such an idyllic environment… sympathetically fake tan…

      Door:
      I also have located the book and my disposal of good ways to digitize. I also volunteer to carry out the business. To see who comes before.
