Description

Here is a fabulous photo showing the massive scale and opulent architectural details of the beautiful White Alabaster Trajan Forum building in Rome, Italy as viewed in 1890.

Rome was a very different world 127 years ago. There were no automobiles, electricity was still in its infancy and still photography was a relatively new and very exciting invention. For the very wealthy, there were lavish picture books for people to gaze upon... exotic and wonderful far off places around the globe; like the book this delightful black and white rotogravure came from.

This original print from 1890 measures 8.5" x 11 overall, by itself without the border, it's 6" x 8." It's printed on quality heavy weight semi-gloss paper. It's smooth and clean, without wrinkles or pings or marks. 'The Trajan Forum Rome, Italy' is a beautiful vintage gem.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these fine old black and white architectural photo prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last two photos are to show how this might look when it's matted and framed. Your antique print will come to you unmatted and unframed.)

Surrender Dorothy offers an outstanding collection of frame-worthy and ever so affordable antique and vintage prints, maps, ads, photos, engravings, sketches, lithos, posters, lithographs, charts and illustrations of all kinds to adorn every room in your happy home. Terrific vintage finds for your workplace too.

Our entire inventory moves very quickly and fresh selections are added each day. Please be sure to bookmark our shop and check back to visit so you don't miss any of our latest discoveries.

I'll send this right to your doorstep packed flat in a stiff mailer sleeve to protect it from damage on the trip from my place to yours, delivered with care by those nice folks at the USPS.

Trajan's Forum (Latin: Forum Traiani) is an ancient structure in Rome, Italy, chronologically the last of the Imperial fora.[1] The forum was constructed by the architect Apollodorus of Damascus.

This forum was constructed on the order of Emperor Trajan with the spoils of war from the conquest of Dacia, which ended in 106.
The Fasti Ostienses states that the Forum was inaugurated in 112, while Trajan's Column was erected and then inaugurated in 113.
To build this monumental complex, extensive excavations were required: workers eliminated the sides of the Quirinal and Capitoline (Campidoglio) Hills, which closed the valley occupied by the Imperial forums toward the Campus Martius.
It is possible that the excavations were initiated under Emperor Domitian, while the project of the Forum was completely attributed to the architect Apollodorus of Damascus, who also accompanied Emperor Trajan in the Dacian campaign.
During the time of the construction, several other projects took place: the construction of the Markets of Trajan.

Payments

Secure options

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.

Cashier's Checks and Money Orders are okay too but only if they are received within four days of your order, otherwise we'll cancel the order and put the item back up for sale.

We BEG you guys, Please... If your Etsy Address and PayPal Addresses are different, please please let us know where you would like us to send your package. We have a real talent for choosing the wrong one.

Returns & exchanges

Returns
We are happy to accept returns in good condition in the original packaging shipped within 48 hours as exchanges only and you agree to pay postage both ways.

Damages In The US Mail.
They happen sometimes.
Although we carefully wrap our vintage breakables in tons of bubblewrap and tons of padding and pack them in sturdy shipping boxes, damages still sometimes happen. *sigh*
Please tell us about damaged goods ASAP. Photograph the damages and send photos to us so that we can work it out with USPS.

Shipping policies

We ship by way of the United States Postal Service only.
Yes, FedEx and UPS are a little bit cheaper, but we find them to be very brutal with our delicates and breakables, so we refuse to play with them.

International Orders
The answer is YES we do ship internationally. Please just ask! There are many shipping destinations on this planet and each one is a slightly different price.

Additional policies

While it is considered customary for many antique and vintage shops to consider offers and dicker prices, our shop simply doesn't.
We've priced our merchandise as fairly as humanly possible. Please don't ask us to haggle.
Thank you.
