During Denmark’s ‘Golden Age’ (c. 1800 to 1850), Copenhagen came into being as a modern city on the urban-cultural level.

This book examines this period in the city’s history,just before the establishment of some of the main features of the modernisation of cities associated with industrialisation, such as street lighting, sewer systems, and working class quarters.
