The printing is the easy part. What you have to keep a close eye on are the shipping costs of large mounts unless you are just looking for prints. We are doing 3 larger canvas wraps 54x40 and are presently making crates to ship them cross country. About $100 to make each crate and just under $100 @ to ship. Most cost effective solution for you if you cannot find someone local to do the entire project. Order the canvas printed and varnished shipped in a tube. Then you should be able to find someone local to mount it for you.

If the canvas is to be rolled shipping will not be an issue. The canvas should be varnished with a felexible archival varnish, eg Eco Print Shield and you might want to consider deckled edges for an antique look, given the era of the image.
Another option for a portable flexible image is printing on silk, which can be rolled, folded, washed and ironed.
