Using VLA data from the archive, the radio morphology of the huge radio-loud Quasar 4C34.47 is investigated. Four images of 4C34.47 were made at two observing frequencies and three array configurations. The images, at resolutions of 4'' and 12'', reveal an object of 800 kpc in size with a 300 kpc long one-sided jet. An upper limit of the angle to the line of sight of the radio source jet axis was found to be <57 degrees, confirming that such angles occur even in the largest known Quasars, thereby implying that the effects of relativistic beaming are important in Quasars. No signicant depolarization asymmetry was found, suggesting that the extended source has 'outgrown' the intergalactic medium causing such asymmetry.
