Old is relative, of course, and some things that Americans think are old are modern when compared to the European timeline.
So here are some old photographs of Venice, all taken in the late-19th century which makes them over 100 years old, which isn't old at all in terms of the history of Venice but IS old in the history of photography. (You can click on the photos to see larger sizes).
Some of you will recognize this vera da pozzo (well-head) - no longer in use today but still there for us to admire.
Pigeons swarming a child - a sight I've seen in Venice myself!
Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.
