Asphaltum Lake in Trinidad, W. I., 1886. Photogravure
An Original Photogravure of the Asphaltum Lake in Trinidad, W. I. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. From the American Architect and Building News, April 24, 1886.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original photogravures only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.75 by 12 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 16 by 12 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
