About This Image

A particularly lovely image with the architectural details. Terris is a very important photographer in the ranks with Baldus, Marville and Le Gray, but he worked in Marseilles and not Paris. He documented the modernization and restoration of Marseilles in the 1860s. H. Revoil was the creator of the pieces and his name appears in ink below the image, as well as a stamp (Nouvelle Cathedrale de Marseille, Bureau). The lighter area in the upper background is a result of unevenness in the wetplate collodion, lending the print an interesting photographic reference.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
