Description

USS Cairo Ironclad Gunboat Blueprint. USS Cairo was one of the first American ironclad warships built at the beginning of the U.S. Civil War. Cairo was the lead ship of the City-class gunboats and named for Cairo, Illinois. She was launched in 1861 and was sunk on December 12, 1862, while clearing mines. Cairo was the first ship ever to be sunk by a mine remotely detonated by hand. The remains of Cairo can be viewed at Vicksburg National Military Park with a museum of its weapons and naval stores.

The original scanned image was digitally restored and cleaned up by me. During this process I adjust the colors, the exposure and fix any blemishes on the print. However, I do not retouch everything in order to maintain the vintage poster look. This ensures that this reproduction looks as good as possible and produces a high quality print – while maintaining a historical accuracy in its look.

WHAT MAKES MY PRINTS DIFFERENT

Sure, you might find similar pictures elsewhere but not all prints are equal. I don’t use regular printers and paper to print this art. Instead, I use a high end lab and the prints are made on professional photo printers using high quality a archival inks and acid-free archival Lustre paper. Lustre is a premium finish on a heavier paper and offers the vibrant colors of glossy with the fingerprint-resistant finish of matte. This type of finish avoids glare on the print.

Prints are available in all popular sizes. You can select your size while you order.

My listing photos are low resolution. Original high resolution files are used for printing. My pictures are not framed and do not include a frame. Some of the pictures with frames are just for illustration purposes only.

SHIPPING:

Prints are packaged to avoid any damage in transit. Usually prints will be flat-packed and shipped in a rigid box with material to protect the finished print. Some prints might be shipped in a rigid mailing tube with material to protect the finished print. Please see the shop’s policies page for additional information on shipping.
