NOTES: The Palais Strousberg was built for the railway magnate Bethel Henry Strousberg in 1867-1868. Following a decline in his fortunes the palace was subsequently acquired by the British government for use as their embassy in 1884. Orth carried out some alterations at this date, and the building remained an embassy until 1939. It was left in ruins at the end of the war and was demolished by the East German government in 1950.

Product overview

Images are printed to order on high quality photographic paper using the latest digital technology. Images can be ordered in either matt, semi-gloss or gloss finish.

If you intend to frame your print behind glass, then we recommend that you select the semi-gloss or matt finish so that you get less light reflection from the print/glass.

The images in our collection, although kept to the highest possible standards, can sometimes display irregularities. These may have been caused during their original printing, or through damage that has occurred before coming to RIBA. In some cases therefore, these may be visible on your photographic reproduction.

Please note that because the original images available come in all shapes and sizes, and will never be cropped or distorted, different images will have different borders. When you order a product, the product choice screen will give you an approximate portrayal of how the image will fit on different print sizes.
