Drawing of the (since-fallen) Petra entrance arch by David Roberts

Petra, Jordan

Here's a good page with early views of Petra in drawings done by David Roberts and two others

Drawing of the (former) arch by David Roberts/ (2 versions of this on a website)

One of two large earthquakes caused it tp break up.  The latest was in 1927.

The narrowest section of the Petra Siq is about 3 feet across!
