More Italian Stereoviews

Displayed in order of oldest to newest:

On the Grand Canal, Venice
On the Grand Canal, Venice

This one probably dates from the 1860s/early 1870s based on the plain style of the card and the condition of the albumen print(s). No label on front or back, but a hand-written note in Italian stating “Palazzo Cavalli”

The Arch of Constantine, Rome
The Arch of Constantine, Rome

This one is still probably 19th century, but 1880s-1890s. American made.

The Piazza della Signoria, Firenze
The Piazza della Signoria, Firenze

Most likely between 1900-1910. This one fascinated me because I’ve actually been there! It was neat to see how the Piazza looked over 100 years ago.

Venus of Canova, Firenze
Venus of Canova, Firenze

This one came along for the ride in the batch of stereoviews. I’m not sure if this Venus resides in the Bargello or the Accademia.
