Shop on Etsy


This is an antique, bevel-matted engraving, from an old newspaper, FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED NEWSPAPER, published in 1884. The prints in this series are printed on what is called rag paper, an antique paper that is stronger & far more enduring than the newspaper we know today. The print is matted in an off-white acid free matte & is backed by a black acid free back-board which is NOT ATTACHED TO THE PRINT, but which should be kept with the print when framed. (Note: in some of the pictures the matte may appear to be tinted blue or pink. That is my camera. The mats in this series are off-white. ) TITLE: NEW YORK CITY SHELTER FOR FRIENDLESS & UNPROTECTED GIRLS SCENES AT ST. MARY'S LODGING HOUSE, WEST 14th STREET (See pictures for smaller text) PUBLICATION DATE: 1884 ARTIST: UPHAM CONDITION: EXCELLENT The prints in this series are clear, clean & bright. No tears, creasing or folds. A really fine image. Excellent definition. Nice clean, sharp lines. This print is about 135 years old & guaranteed to be original. It's an authentic old print from the aforementioned publication, & NOT A REPRODUCTION. The visible part of the print is about 10" x 15" (including the border around the print). Matted the print measures 16" x 20". This is a standard size matte that will fit into a standard size frameno costly custom frames required.
