    Antique photograph of Rome

    Hi Everyone,

    I have this old photograph and have always wondered what it is worth.

    It is (including the frame) 45 inches wide X 22.5 inches tall. I have actually seen a painting of this exact scene hanging in a hotel lobby.

    I have taken a few closeups of the photo. The detail is phenomenal.

    I am not sure what time of day it was taken but it seems odd that there isn't a single person anywhere in the photo.

    The frame is some sort of tiger wood. The paper backing is so old it is brittle and flaking off like chips of aged brown paper.

    Any input or opinions on this would really be appreciated.

    "The mountains are calling and I must go." - John Muir

    Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792 - 1822

    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    I have gifted similar kind of old painting in a new and trendy way to my uncle. You can also try it by converting a copy of this picture into pop art pictures. These pictures look beautiful due to their vibrant colors.
