26. Naples from the Eastward, 2nd series

Location: Naples

Keywords: Italy;Panorama

A view of Naples from the east, with lateen-rigged ships drawn up on the shore.

This view of a harbour is related to Schaaf number 3073. The two images may form a panorama as the row of logs and ship prows are common to both photographs.

Close inspection of this half of the panorama shows blurred figures which have moved during the long photographic exposure.
