Boat Ride of King Ludwig II in the Grotto

"After the king had fed the swans brought to him from the castle ponds he had himself rowed about in the golden shell boat designed by Franz Seitz, - in the picture to the left an illustration by Robert Asmus. The waves of the lake were generated by a special machinery."
