Photographer's Note

Stolberg is a charming little town just outside the Harz.rnStolberg was established as a settlement for miners in around AD 1000, although there is evidence of mining in the area as far back as 794.rnFrom its earliest days, Stolberg had been the residence and family seat of the counts of Stolberg. In 1548 it became the seat of Stolberg-Stolberg. In 1738 the counts of Stolberg were forced to recognize the suzerainty of the Electorate of Saxony. The town was awarded to the Kingdom of Prussia in the 1815 Congress of Vienna and Stolberg was subsequently administered by the Prussian Province of Saxony.
