Garibaldi's entry into Naples - a sketch in the Strada di Toledo, by T. Nast, 1860. 'The Toledo is the main artery of Naples, and Garibaldi traversed this magnificent street in the afternoon, on his way from the palace where he had taken up his abode to the cathedral. A correspondent thus describes the scene; "After some hours of refreshment and repose the Dictator, accompanied as before, went up the Toledo to the Duomo and back to the Palazzo again, where he remained; and this time there was more enthusiasm, and a different class of people assembled. Indeed, it was a most successful demonstration. Looking up the side streets the perspective was beautiful, for gay tricoloured flags were out from every window...the crowds continued to shout till not a sound voice could have remained in Naples. Had it not been for the exodus which has taken place during the last two months, the demonstration would have been more brilliant; but thousands of persons are either in the country or out of the kingdom".' From "Illustrated London News", 1860.
