The SS 'L'Atlantique' on fire, 1933, (1935). Creator: Unknown

The SS 'L'Atlantique' on fire, 1933, (1935). 'L'Atlantique' caught fire off the coast of France on the way to be refitted. The crew abandoned ship, and 'L'Atlantique' was considered a total loss. She was insured by Lloyd's of London for almost £1,000,000. There was a long debate between the owners and insurers, eventually resulting in the payment of US$6.8 million to Compagnie de Navigation Sud Atlantique for the loss. From "The Silver Jubilee Book - The Story of 25 Eventful Years in Pictures". [Odhams Press Ltd., London, 1935]

'French XVIIIth century cabinet', c1950. Creator: Shirley Markham

'French XVIIIth century cabinet with gilt decoration and marble top', c1950. Painting above by Nicholas Lancret. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time.

'Dr. Simpson in the Hut at the Other End of the Telephone Timing the Observation', c1911, (1913)

'Dr. Simpson in the Hut at the Other End of the Telephone Timing the Observation', c1911, (1913). Meteorologist George Simpson (1878-1965) took detailed measurements in order to predict the best possible conditions for Scott's journey to the Pole. The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume I. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]
