Narrative:
THIS tower, which was formerly the belfry of St. Nicholas' Church, now serves as the principal watch-tower of the capital. The Church was burnt down in the year 1795, and the space on which it stood is used as a market place.   The tower has been much improved by a modern architect, and has a striking and picturesque appearance.  It is of a deep red colour.   From its height it serves as a land-mark for vessels steering up the Sound;  for the towers of Copenhagen, (when the city is approached from the Baltic) appear like those of Cadiz and of Venice, to rise out of the sea.
