This interesting view of Mt. Vesuvius and the vicinity of Naples includes a inset showing active crater inside the volcano. Several people are seen climbing the mountain and peering over the edge to "Satisfont leurs curiosites" (satisfy their curiosity).
Good impression and original color. Some toning and spots in the blank margins.
