This genuine antique wood-cut engraving and text is titled “SUSPENSION BRIDGE OVER NIAGARA RIVER”, published in “Ballou’s Pictorial” June 1855. This engraving and text from the year of 1855 is 11 x 12 inches in size with wide margins. It is in excellent condition, highly displayable and ready for framing and is guaranteed to be as described. I do not deal in copies/reproductions.
The lines you may see in some of the older engravings are from the adjoining of woodblocks to make/produce the complete image. In order to speed up the process of wood-cut engravings, several artists carved a section of the block of wood then the blocks were adjoined, stamped in ink then onto this page. Also occasional spots or foxing are usual for these older engravings. They do not detract from the value or splendor of the engraving but only attest to it’s authenticity!
This beautiful and decorative antique engraving would make a great addition to any Home, Office or Restaurant decor!
