1911 in Hamburg opened an engineering feat and celebrated as a sensation. A tunnel under the river Elbe connects Hamburg's city center by the harbor. Good 160.5 million euros, according to current monetary cost with their powerful lifts the construction of 2 tubes of 426.5 m length and the two access shafts. Nearly 2 billion people are so far gone or moved under the same round. (Of course, these were often the same, mostly dockers, otherwise one third of the world's population would have been in ancient Elbe ...)
The now "old" Elbe Tunnel is still used as a public right of way. Due to the high volume of tourist traffic through and out of Hamburg, another tunnel was opened in 1975, leading the BAB 7 under the same round.
The first historical Elbe tunnel for some years been under monument protection and was extensively renovated 100-year anniversary in 2011 and restored.
Here, there are deep down in the tubes with about 20 m of water over his head addresses where you can get information about the slope and the depth of the tubes. Such addresses - only in uppercase - inspired me to make this font.
