Grandfather of Ludwig Prinz
Born 30 July 1909
† 11 December 1969
Ludwig Salomon was a commercial employee until the start of the second world war. After he fully healed from a major war injury, he worked for the German Institution of Cartography. He earned his living with part time jobs as a graphic designer, amongst other things as a designer for shoes. After the great depression in Germany, he was employed as a cartographer at the company Mayr in Stuttgart.
Together with some friends, he came up with the idea of drawing a perfectly scaled map of Vienna viewed from above. Living in Vienna again, working as a cartogrpaher at the company Hölzl, he began the grueling work of creating the plan. Beginning in the year 1964, he began researching, planning and drawing the map piece by piece. After four years of hard work he finally finished it 1968. He could enjoy his beautiful map for only one year. He died unexpectedly on December 11, 1969 because of a heart attack. My aunt, the second born of his three daughters, then took over the rights and publishing duties.
Grandson of Ludwig Salomon
Born 18 October 1962
The first time I was involved with the work of my grandfather, I drew newly built buildings, which were missing on the outdated city map, like the Marriott hotel, Haashaus and the Hotel Plaza. As commissioned by the "Lebisch" agency the updated map of the first district was to be presented in advertising glass cases, called "Citylights", placed all over the center of Vienna by Gewista.
At the time my aunt was the official publisher of the plan. However, due to my drawing additions, I acquired the copyright. The idea of further updating the map by adding the new outer ring of Vienna was born at that time.
It took until 2007 until I finally realized my idea and finished the project. Now I am glad to be able to publish this beautiful, up to date 3D map of the city of Vienna!
