Photograph comprising 11 images joined together to offer a 360° field of vision.

This panoramic view includes the factory belonging to the Krupp in Essen. The original photograph was probably an institutional gift to the Museum, as the Spanish army bought artillery materiel from the Krupp company. The factory which can be seen in the view was established in 1811 by Friederich Krupp (1787–1826), but it was his son Alfred Krupp (1812–1887) who built the large complex appearing in the image. There is a similar exhibit in the Historische Archiv Krupp in Essen dated between 1864–1867.
