This image is an illustration of the town of Rüdesheim am Rhein, Germany showing the embankment along the Rhine River.
The description translates roughly as:
Rüdesheim, a cozy, old-fashioned wine-growing village, is situated at the foot of the Niederwald, unspoilt by its magnificent vineyards, whose yields have made the name of the city famous. From the height there appears a great national monument.
–The last sentence refers to the Niederwalddenkmal, which was erected to celebrate the formation of the German empire after the 1870 Franco-Prussian War.
This image likely dates from the 1920s.
