Wright Brothers National Memorial at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, USA

Wright Brothers National Memorial at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, USA. The Wright Brothers Monument is in the distance, and in the foreground is the First Flight Marker, the granite boulder that marks the place that the first take-off of the first airplane was made. On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers first flew a piloted, heavier-than-air, powered machine. Approved by Congress in 1927, the Kill Devil Hill National Memorial includes the Wright Memorial Shaft, a sixty-foot granite monument. On over 300 acres, it was dedicated in 1932

Yosemite Fall, 1872. Creator: Alfred Harral Featured Image

Yosemite Fall, 1872. Creator: Alfred Harral

Yosemite Fall, 1872. Waterfall in Yosemite National Park, California, USA. Yosemite Fall is described as grand beyond all power of expression. The summit of the upper fall is a little over two thousand six hundred feet above the valley; for fifteen hundred feet the descent is absolutely vertical, and the rock is like a wall of masonry. Before this, the fall of water sways and sweeps, yielding to the force of the fitful wind with a marvellous grace and endless variety of motion. For a moment it descends with continuous roar; in another instant it is caught, and, reversing its flight, rises upward in wreathing, eddying mists, finally fading out like a summer cloud. The full-page illustration is taken from a clump of pine-trees so near that, by the rapid foreshortening, the entire fall appears in very different proportions from those seen from the opposite side of the valley'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson Featured Image

Joan of Arc, 1902. Artist: Patten Wilson

Joan of Arc, 1902. Joan of Arc, 15th century French patriot and martyr. Claiming divine inspiration, Joan of Arc (c1412-1431) persuaded Charles VII to declare himself King of France (at the time France was ruled by England under the terms of the Treaty of Troyes signed in 1420). Charles gave Joan authority over the French army at the Siege of Orleans in 1429, which proved to be the turning point in the Hundred Years War in favour of the French. Joan was captured at Compiegne in May 1430 by the Burgundians, who handed her over to the English. Tried on a charge of heresy, Joan was executed and martyred in 1431, but Charles VII went on to regain all of France from the English, with the exception of Calais. After a work by Patten Wilson (1869-1934). From A Child's History of England by Charles Dickens [J. M. Dent & Co. New York, 1902]. (Colorised black and white print)
