Transcript The Story of Nurem of the place and of coming upon the most picturesque bits of old Nuremberg than to work round the three lines of fortifications sketched here) -we will start again from the Maxthor, the nineteenth-century gateway on the north side of the town. From the Fi turm, which is near at hand, the wall ran alongside of the seven rows of houses (Zeilen) which were built by the Council in 14NS (on the old moat which had been fdled in) for the immigrating Swabiai ; and then from the Webersplatz by the Landauerkloster (used at the present time as a polytechnic school) straight down to the Lauferschlagturm.
