Descriptive note printed on verso (in poor English): St.
Marks Cathedral with the Bell Tower and an arch of
the Procuratie nuove: It is to be seen the façade
of the Cathedral built in the Xth and XIth centuries in
Byzantine style. At the right the great bell tower 313 engl.
feet high, begun in the Xth century. An arch of the Procuratir
nuove, frams [sic] the picture.
The campanile of San Marco collapsed spontaneously on July
14, 1902, after this photograph was taken. A replica has
since been rebuilt on the same spot.
