'A New-York River-Front', 1874. Creator: William James Palmer

'A New-York River-Front', 1874. Sailing ships on the quay in New York Harbour, New York, USA. '...a quaint and picturesque scene, lying but a short distance from the Battery on the East-River side. This is a portion of the town which modern improvement has left untouched; the wharves where the old-fashioned ships from far-off ports discharge their precious cargoes; where merchants of the old Knickerbocker quality conduct their business in dark and unsavory chambers; where the old tars...are wont to assemble; where the very idea of a steamship is profanation - a venerable, quaint, and decaying place, dear to the hearts of the ancient mariners'. 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. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]

'The Ocean Grave of the Titanic', and photograph of Captain Edward Smith, April 20, 1912

'The Ocean Grave of the Titanic', and photograph of Captain Edward Smith, April 20, 1912. Article entitled 'The Ocean Grave of the Titanic', and photograph of Smith: 'The Commander of the Titanic and the Bows of his Ship'. Captain Edward Smith (1850-1912) went down with his ship, and consequently became an icon of British 'stiff upper lip' spirit, due to his stoicism and fortitude in the face of adversity. The White Star Line ship RMS 'Titanic' struck an iceberg in thick fog off Newfoundland on 14 April 1912. She was the largest and most luxurious ocean liner of her time, and thought to be unsinkable. In the collision, five of her watertight compartments were compromised and she sank. Out of the 2228 people on board, only 705 survived. A major cause of the loss of life was the insufficient number of lifeboats she carried. Page 3, from "Titanic In Memoriam Number", a special supplement in "The Daily Graphic" newspaper issued following the sinking of the 'Titanic' on 15 April 1912, published on 20 April 1912.
