THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photograph by Mrs. Branson De Cou "WATER BUSES" BEAR SIGHT-SEERS THROUGH THE BROAD CANALS OF COPENHAGEN Scenic and restful are the capital's many wide avenues of water, now used mainly by pleasure craft and by workaday fishing smacks that haul their catch to the fish market. The city's skyline is punctuated by historic copper-green towers. The spire of twisted dragon tails (right) rises from the Royal Stock Exchange, or B0rsen (Plate II). One of the strangest spires is that of the Church of Our Redeemer, in the distance. Around the outside of the steeple winds a spiral stairway of 397 steps.
