This is Munich: 05/18/21
This is Munich by Miroslav Sasek is the sixth book in the This Is... picture book series. This one is set in Munich, the capital of Bavaria, Germany.
As with most of the books I've read so far, I read a reissue. This one was reprinted with an appendix of changes in 2012. Of the books I've read so far, this one felt the most dated.
The one big detail that popped out for me were the shear number of horse drawn carts of various types, including sand wagons on snowy days, and ice wagons during Oktoberfest. Another interesting detail was the library train, since replaced by a bookmobile.
The next book in the series is This is Venice (1961)
