Lowell Mason in Rossplatz, Leipzig - early May, 1852

from Musical letters from Abroad, pages 122-3:

The show-places, theatres, menageries, panoramas, circuses, and houses or sheds for various games, sports, &c., come next. There are about twenty of these within sight of our window in Rossplatz; and as almost every one of them employs a band of music, and as many of these bands are playing on the piazzas or balconies outside of the buildings, at the same time, in different keys and movements, we are not at a loss for instrumental exhibitions daily from three to ten o’clock. But at ten everything ceases, and within half an hour all is hushed to stillness.
