Publisher: Ludwig Riffehnacher, Fiirth i. Bayern, Wiirzburgerstr. 201
Franked with Sc 403 exhibiting a fine example of the “Eagle” roller cancellation, “a” date stamp. Posted in Niirnberg 2 on 6 May 1940.

Luginsland, a municipal building erected by the Free City of Nurnberg, is a square tower surmounted by a helm with four turrets. It stands on the east side of the “Imperial Stables.” It was erected by the town in one operation in the bitterly cold winter of 1377 and w'as intended to allow the Free City to watch what was happening in the Burgrave’s Castle and was thus part of the system of defense with which the town surrounded the Castle before its final destruction in 1420. Later, this tower was used as a prison. At the end of the 15,h century the City connected the two formerly hostile towers—the Luginsland and the Pentagonal Tower—by erecting the wide tract of the Imperial Stables, thus producing an architectural group rich in contrasts and of great distinction.
