   The Visitation, version (c) richenda fairhurst
Landscapes (page one)
Bridges, harbors and picturesque scenes

The Photochrom Photograph collection displayed on these pages is dated between 1890 and 1900 and available from the Library of Congress.  The collection includes pictures of abbeys, cathedrals, and churches, and also castles, city gates, bridges, harbors, and more.  Click here for Castles and Gates.  Click here for Abbeys and Churches.  Click here for local folk in traditional custumes. Scroll down for everything else.

I wish I had time to fill these pages with information about each picture.  But realistically, I just don't.  Fortunately, in today's world, if you need more information, you can google to find it.  Post any info in my comments section if you like. 

With or without the particulars, it is really the photographs that matter and they speak for themselves.  Not only are they beautiful, but they were taken before motorcars arrived to ruin the picturesque scene.  Best of all, these photographs are all in the public domain, which means I am free to use them as I like, and so are you!

Enjoy them!!

Various picturesque scenes include bridges, Roman Ruins, village scenes, napoleon's throne and bedroom, Marie Antoinette's
bedroom, Opera Houses, and more from Europe, North Africa, and the Holy Land.
