A large original antique print with contemporary hand colouring. Overall size of print is 52cm x 39cm (including the mount it is 65 x 48.5 cm). In very good condition with central fold as issued. As with all the prints taken from the Illustrated London News, there is printed text on the reverse of the image. This was mounted a few years ago and once it has been framed, will be a sensational and historic showpiece. In 1852, opposite the wing of the Louvre, Baron Haussmann enlarged the Place du Palais-Royal that is centered on the baroque Palais Royal, built for Cardinal Richelieu in 1624 and given to the royal family, with its garden surrounded by chic commercial arcades.
