This baroque engraving focuses on the northern city gate with the fortifications. Details of wooden houses in the foreground can be contrasted with the palace and cathedral in the town proper. Details showing windmills, docks and fish hatcheries attest to the growing economic importance of Stockholm that began after the Middle Ages and continued into the Enlightenment Age.
