Toucan, at the Surrey Zoological Gardens, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Toucan, at the Surrey Zoological Gardens, 1844. It is one of a class - the Ramphastidoe - so little known in this country, that only one living specimen was ever imported. Our bird is known to zoologists as the Ramphastos Toco, but by the marvel-loving sailor, he is called the Preaching Toucan, from the incessant "palaver" with which he cheers his native solitude - the virgin forest of South America. In his present confinement he has shown himself to be a docile, contented, and, in some respects, humorous, fellow - playing very strange pranks for the accommodation of his enormous bill...His plumage is of the gaudy and striking character...being made up of blue and white patches, edged here and there with yellow and little iridescent spots of lustrous beauty. In his instincts he is a very gluttonous bird, and longs to be chopping up large butterflys and humming-birds by the dozens'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Interior of a Power-Loom factory, 1844. We are persuaded that the annexed engraving will be interesting to our readers, in connection with the great question of "The Factory Bill," which has just been disposed of by the Legislature.
The power-loom is now generally used in the cotton manufacture, for the weaving of plain cloth, and for the various kinds of twilled and figured goods; and Dr. Cooke Taylor considers that manual labour, at least for the coarser kinds of goods, must rapidly fall into disuse. In one respect, the power-loom has a very obvious advantage over the hand-loom...the lathe is easily adjusted to give a certain steady blow...power-loom cloth is always of a more equable and regular texture than that woven by hand'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
