This is a rare and historical antique reproduction: a matted, wood mounted photo print depicting the historic panoramic photograph above. The plaque is a beautiful depiction of a bygone era which is shipped ready to be hung and enjoyed! The plaque is made by taking a professionally made Giclee reprint of the original and dry-mounting it onto a custom crafted piece of wood. The printed image is then permanently sealed to the wood surface with a clear matte laminate to allow for long life preservation. The edges of the plaque are beveled and a slot in the back allows for easy hanging flush to any wall. A desk-rest base is also provided free of charge to allow for easy desktop display.
The matted plaque is approximately 13.5in x 6in by 1/3in thick and each wood print is custom made to order. A generic picture of one of our other popular matted plaques is shown below for reference.

The final print is rendered so clearly and crisply that it closely resembles that of a painted work of art. Panoramic photos were extremely popular at the close of the 19th century and again now due the precision of Giclee printing.
