Fiume, the Mole, (i.e, Molo), Croatia, Austro-Hungary
This photochrome print is from “Views of the Austro-Hungarian Empire,” a selection of photographs of late 19th-century tourist sites in Eastern and Central Europe (formerly known as the Austro-Hungarian Empire) that was part of the catalog of the Detroit Publishing Company. It depicts the dock in the town of Opatija, Croatia, or Abbazia as it was known in Italian. At the time the photo was taken, Croatia was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Adriatic coast was populated by many ethnic Italians.
