Dimensions: 34,1 x 43,5 cm,
Artist or Maker: Charles Clifford (1819 -1863)
Medium: Papel albuminado, Albumen print, 34,1 x 43,5 cm, tiraje de época, vintage
Date: 1858
Literature: Clifford en España, un fotógrafo en la corte de Isabel II (1997) p. 19122 A photographic scramble through Spain (1861)
Notes: In this photograph we can see a stork resting on the aqueduct and some birds flying around the arches. The image looks like a snapshot, although, due to the technical limitations of the time it is probably a montage. Printed on the image is number 43, which corresponds to the catalogue number in A Photographic Scramble through Spain. Clifford describes how badly treated this monument was: “ ruins of Roman Aqueduct, daily disappearing, as it forms a delectable quarry for the adjacent population wherever a new hovel or house is in course of erection”.
