    Pictures of Old Rome by Frances Minto Dickinson Elliot is an enchanting account of Roman history in all its glory. Elliot opens a window into the world of Rome in its ancient days through a descriptive narrative that is sure to make the reader feel the sights and sounds he painstakingly constructs throughout the course of this book. Spread across thirteen chapters, Pictures of Old Rome starts with an account of the Piazza Del Popolo in all its grandeur. The author sets the tone for the rest of the text with an imaginative recollection of events as they would have been in ancient times, with references to the Emperor's parades and victory marches through the Piazza. He then moves on to describe various other points of attraction in the city including the mausoleum of Augustus, the catacombs, San Gregorio and many more. It is, however, Elliot's description of Rome's socio-economic dichotomy that keeps the reader enthralled. While a majority of the work praises and applauds the magnificent architecture and cultural revolution of Rome, it is in the chapter on Rome's Interiors that the reader will fully understand the stark differences between the rich and the poor and the urban rural divide that existed in old Rome. Elliot adopts sanguine language and liberal use of superlatives in this gripping recount of Rome in the days of the empire. Pictures of Old Rome is a must read for all those who are keen to learn more about this historical place whilst also being a treasure trove of information for travel enthusiasts and history buffs alike.
