Αθήναι 1874. Η άποψη της πόλεως από τον λόφο του Λυκαβηττού. Σε πρώτο πλάνο το Κολωνάκι. Ο δρόμος αριστερά είναι η οδός Ομήρου. Στο βάθος δεξιά στο μέσο περίπου της φωτογραφίας (ύψος) το σπίτι που διακρίνεται με το αέτωμα είναι το Μέγαρο Θεοδωρίδη-Ευκλείδη, κτισμένο το 1864 από τον αρχιτέκτονα Γρηγοριάδη. Ήταν επί της Πανεπιστημίου 19 και Ομήρου. Το κατεδάφισαν το 1961. (βλ. https://www.facebook.com/149801415032228/photos/a.149816471697389.25352.149801415032228/889240267755002/?type=3&theater) Επίσης φαίνεται και η Παλαιά Βουλή επί της Σταδίου 13 υπό ανέγερση. Δεν φαίνεται να έχει μπει ακόμα η στέγη. Το κτήριο ολοκληρώθηκε το 1875. Στο βάθος η Ακρόπολη με τον φράγκικο πύργο. Ο Ερρίκος Σλήμαν ανέλαβε να τον κατεδαφίσει το 1875.
