Black-White Impressions, Vienna, Stadtbahn

The unadulterated and original effect and a hint of nostalgia in black and white photography inspire me when taking photos of Vienna, the city where I live and enjoy showing others. The theme of the day is Black and White Impressions, Vienna Metropolitan Railway.

The Wiener Stadtbahn (Vienna Metropolitan Railway) was a public transportation system operated under this name from 1898 to 1989. Today, the Vienna U-Bahn (metro) lines U4 and U6 and the Vienna S-Bahn (rapid transit) run on its former route.
The Stadtbahn is one of Vienna’s best-known examples of early Art Nouveau architecture.
Some preserved historical stations are the elevated stops along the Gürtel and in some of the suburbs. The project is one of the main works of architect Otto Wagner.

You see some of my black-and-white Vienna photos from my album My Vienna:
