Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Athens: Acropolis from SW before demolition of Frankish tower (according to picture card)". Possibly from a commercial image.
Notes The Frankish tower on the acropolis was dismantled in 1874. The date of the image must, therefore, pre-date this. Published in the first SPHS catalogue of the image collection in JHS for 1897, possibly identified as catalogue number Ab 12a. Possibly a commercial image.
