A recent acquisition: three unused postcards featuring line art drawings of Rome.

We'll start with the easy one y'all know: the Anfiteatro Flavio.

Cheers,

A line art drawing of the SS Giovanni e Paolo e Vicus Scauri in Rome, Italy.

It is easy to find corroborating images of The Basilica of Saints John & Paul because there are more than one ... basilicas, that is. Most images you find online are for the The Basilica of Saints John & Paul in Venice, but you can find images of the one in Rome.

https://www.mfah.org/art/detail/65761/ ... Compare the line art drawing with this photograph (albumen silver print) from the 1850s!

https://museum.wales/picture-librar...1610---1652/ ... Even better, compare it with this lovely painting from the early 1600s!

Methinks that the earlier artist took a bit of artistic license though, of course, arches do get rebuilt now & again.

A line art drawing of the Tempio della Mater Matuta in Rome that compares well an architectural drawing of same.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mater_Matuta


Quote:
Mater Matuta was an indigenous Latin goddess, whom the Romans eventually made equivalent to the dawn goddess Aurora, and the Greek goddess Eos. Her cult is attested several places in Latium; her most famous temple was located at Satricum. In Rome she had a temple on the north side of the Forum Boarium, allegedly built by Servius Tullius, destroyed in 506 B.C., and rebuilt by Marcus Furius Camillus in 396 B.C.,[1] and she was also associated with the sea harbors and ports, where there were other temples to her.
