Silver statue of the Duke of Wellington, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Silver statue of the Duke of Wellington, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Silver statue of the Duke of Wellington, 1845. 'This beautiful Equestrian Statue of his Grace the Duke of Wellington, has just been executed in silver by Messrs. Widdowson and Veale, of the Strand. Its total height is 29 inches, and its weight nearly 200 ounces. The great Hero is supposed to be giving his last charge on the field of Waterloo: ("Up Guards, and at them!"). The details of the costume have been copied from authentic sources; and the likeness is most striking. The ease and vraisemblance of the figure, and the execution throughout, reflect the highest credit on the artists. We understand that this costly memorial of British valour has been executed to commission; and is now on its way to Calcutta'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.

Inauguration of the Wellington Statue, Glasgow, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Inauguration of the Wellington Statue, Glasgow, 1844. Unveiling of an equestrian sculpture of British soldier and politician Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, in front of the Royal Exchange. The sculptor was Carlo Marochetti. The scene was very imposing; for various banners flaunted in the vicinity, and every house-top and window from which a view could be obtained, was filled with anxious gazers...The opening was greeted by a round of enthusiastic cheering, and succeeded by ihe booming of the guns of the artillery, which had been placed in Bell's Park, and which signalised the moment of the inauguration to every part of the city'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

A Blenkinsop Locomotive at a Yorkshire Colliery, 1814, (1945). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

A Blenkinsop Locomotive at a Yorkshire Colliery, 1814, (1945). Creator: Unknown

A Blenkinsop Locomotive at a Yorkshire Colliery, 1814, (1945). Man smoking a pipe, and a Blenkinsop steam locomotive at Middleton colliery near Leeds, West Yorkshire. Mining engineer and inventor John Blenkinsop (1783-1831) designed the first practicable steam locomotive, the Salamanca, in 1812. It operated by means of a rack and pinion system. Richard Trevithick had built a steam locomotive in 1805 for Wylam colliery, but it had been too heavy for the cast iron rails it was meant to run on. Middleton colliery laid iron edge rails, which were stronger than those used at Wylam. Blenkinsop went on to build three further locomotives for the colliery, which carried on operating on the railway into the 1830s. In the meantime, further improvements in rail design meant that heavier adhesion locomotives could be used, superseding Blenkinsop's rack and pinion engines. From "British Railways", by Arthur Elton.
