Albumen of three large columns and a couple of men in front of a large forum (?) with Mount Vesuvius in the distance mounted on grey stock. Excellent tones and sharp image. 7 38 inches tall and 9 ¼ inches wide (18.5 x 23.5 cm). Sheet 18 by 22 inches (46 x 56 cm).

Condition; excellent with minor surface scuffing to the image. Card with some spots, rough edges and rounded corners, but overall clean.

A very good quality image, found with a group of other Italian architectural images mounted on the same grey stock, though most of them were on larger pieces of stock. I suspect that they were part of an institution’s collection. This image is far better quality than most of the images that were sold to tourists.
