'The Spouting Horn in a Storm', 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton Featured Print

'The Spouting Horn in a Storm', 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton

'The "Spouting Horn" in a Storm', 1872. Rocks on the coast of Maine, north eastern USA: 'a wide chasm in the cliff, which extends down to the water and opens to the sea through a small archway below high-water mark. At low water the arch may be reached over the slippery, weed-covered rocks, and the chasm within ascended by means of uncertain footholds in the sides of the rocky wall. A few adventurous tourists have accomplished this feat, but it is a very dangerous one. If the foot should slip on the smooth, briny rock, and the adventurer glide into the water, escape would be almost impossible. The waves would suck him down into their depths - now toss him upon rocks, whose slippery surface would resist every attempt to grasp, then drag him back into their foaming embrace'. 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]

'The North-West Passage', 1874, (1901). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

'The North-West Passage', 1874, (1901). Creator: Unknown

'The North-West Passage', 1874, (1901). An old seaman looks thoughtful as he considers the danger of an expedition to find the sea route round North America via the Canadian Arctic. Many such expeditions had ended in failure and death. His daughter reads from a log book as she holds his hand. On the table is a map, behind him hangs the portrait of a ship's commander, and flags lean against the wall: evidence of his seafaring days. After the 1874 painting by John Everett Millais, in the Tate Gallery, London. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]
