THE FORUM TEMPLE RUINS, ROME
a panorama comprised of 3 carbon prints, in an old, possibly original, gilt wood frame, 1880s
20¾ by 46 in. (52.7 by 116.8 cm.)
This early, carbon print panorama has not been examined out of its frame. It appears, however, to be in generally excellent condition. It is a panorama view composed of 3 prints. Upon close inspection, foxing is visible mostly in the sky area. There is some craquelure along the lower edge. The extreme edges of the print appear to be somewhat darkened.
