The War in Denmark: Prussian troops leaving Altona for Schleswig...at the railway station, 1864. Creator: Frederick John Skill

The War in Denmark: Prussian troops leaving Altona for Schleswig - the officers taking a hasty meal at the railway station, from a sketch by our special artist, 1864. Under the impression that the allied army is now taking possession of Schleswig to deliver it up to the Prince of Augustenburg, a change in the public feeling in Holstein has, we learn, taken place since it was known that the troops had crossed the Eider. This change is nowhere more conspicuous than in Altona, where the Prussians and Austrians were at first received, not only with coolness and suspicion, but in many of the streets with hoots and hisses. But, now...the enthusiasm of the mob is as much in favour of the allies as it was previously against them...when the celebrated regiment of the Prussian Foot Guards called "Kaiser Franz, "...arrived at the Holstein frontier and entered Altona... they were received by the assembled populace with loud cheering, and escorted by them...to the terminus, where they were treated with refreshments, at the expense of the town, previous to being forwarded by special trains to the front. In the course of the afternoon several other Prussian corps arrived, and were received in the same way with noisy demonstrations of joy'. From "Illustrated London News", 1864
