Description

USS Alabama Print. Vintage Photo on Canvas. Vintage Fine Art Print. Long Island, 1906


IMAGE DETAILS:


This image is of the USS Alabama off the cost of New York. It was taken in 1906 by a large format glass plate camera. The ship was part of The Great White Fleet which was the popular nickname for the powerful United States Navy battle fleet that completed a journey around the globe from 16 December 1907, to 22 February 1909, by order of United States President Theodore Roosevelt. The ship was sunk in 1921.


The rough edges on this print are due to the original emulsion coating on the "film" of the glass plate. The light-sensitive emulsion of silver salts was coated on a glass plate, typically thinner than common window glass. Glass plates were far superior to film because they were extremely stable, had amazing details and were less likely to bend or distort. Glass plate photographic material largely faded in the early years of the 20th century, as less fragile films were increasingly adopted. These images are are rare find and will look amazing in your home or office.



WHAT IS A HANGING PRINT

It is custom printed and designed here in our South Carolina map shop by us. These large images are printed on archival poly/cotton canvas and mounted on two reclaimed red oak bars colored with our own custom stains. This allows some of the wood grain to show through the hanging bars. The weight of the bars allows the map to hang straight and level. Each hanging map includes a cast iron hanger and cotton cord for hanging. It will arrive to you ready to hang on your wall.



We do offer these prints on paper as well. We use a archival satin paper that produces a fine art print that will not fade or discolor. These prints are museum quality and should be frame for display. We print all our images on our 12 ink Canon large format fine art printers.



**Any of the prints can be made as a TV cover as well, just email us.



INCLUDED WITH YOUR HANGING PHOTO

1. A saw tooth hanger is attached to each hanging canvas in case you do not want to use the hanging ring.

2. Cast iron hanging ring and hardware.

3. Black is the standard wood color, but we will do the wood in grey, brown or white if requested.

4. All fine art prints will come rolled in a heavy weight shipping tube.



SHIPPING AND RETURNS

We ship by Fedex/USPS and shipping time may take 1-2 days for the East Coast and 3-5 days for the West Coast. Our turn around time is 7-14 business days for hanging photos and 5 days for fine art prints.

Returns for all rolled images and hanging prints must be made with in seven days and returned in NEW condition. Buyer pays for the return postage.

Contact us for international orders due to size limits of various countries.
