Views of Milan at the begginning of '900

When it already looked in some way like Amsterdam with his "navigli", ancient channels mostly covered up in '20s, once running across the whole historical city center















Covering naviglio...



Something other gone away....
Old Milan Central Train Station, built in '800 demolished in '30s...







... to be replaced by still existing (and working) Stazione Centrale, built a km more North and finished in 1939

Awesome thread! I love old european cities' pics!

Too bad for the old train station in Milan, in a way it was nicer than the new one.
BTW...was Rijeka italian at some point? all the letterings on the postcards are in italian...

The XVIIIth and the XIXth centuries saw an artificial convergence of European architecture limited to cities.

However, just like Milan, many towns covered their water ways ( Brussels for example ). What a pity.

Because rural architecture still was very diverse and utilitarist.

So it was artificial because it was limited to cities?

Rural refers to countryside. As for artificial, I just mean it was an intellectual creation ( architects, dsigners, process of imitation, technicization ) the same way you can find Roman ruins everywhere in Europe, which doesn't mean the vernacular architectures were all unified.

That's happened in every centuries actually

Since the Ancient ages architectural stylemes were the "canon" you could find repeated in every city
