GREAT CHICAGO FIRE 1871, BURNING OF CROSBY OPERA HOUSE

 

GREAT CHICAGO FIRE 1871, BURNING OF CROSBY OPERA HOUSE

 

 

  

 

 

This genuine antique wood-cut engraving/print is titled "CHICAGO IN FLAMES--BURNING OF THE CROSBY OPERA-HOUSE",  published in "Harper's Weekly" October 1871. This dated engraving from the year of 1871 is 9 x 9 inches in size with wide margins. It is in excellent condition, highly displayable and ready for framing and is guaranteed to be as described.

The lines you may see in some of the older engraving/prints 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 engravings that are over 135 years old. They do not detract from the value or splendor of the engraving but only attest to it's authenticity!

This beautiful and decorative wood-block engraving would make a great addition to any home, office or restaurant decor!
