Giacchino Altobelli and Pompeo Molins worked together between 1861-1865 and were known for their early picturesque views of Rome. Molins' photo studio in Palazzo Negroni-Caffarelli was completely destroyed in a fire in 1893. Some retouched spots, otherwise a fine tonal print in very good condition.
