The photograph forms part of a folio from 1887, documenting views of the Berlin Zeughaus. The museum was opened just five years prior, making these images a fairly good representation of its earliest displays. This view shows the south-west corner of the upper floor, in which a series of vitrines housed uniforms from the time of Friedrich the Great.
