Rescue basket used during Hurricane Katrina, ca. 2005. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Rescue basket used during Hurricane Katrina, ca. 2005. Creator: Unknown

In August 2005, Atlantic Hurricane Katrina caused over 1,800 deaths and $125 billion in damage, particularly in the city of New Orleans and the surrounding areas. There were claims that race, class, and other factors could have contributed to delays in government response. The rescue basket is constructed almost entirely of welded type 304 stainless steel. The bail assembly folds into the basket for compact stowage. The structural integrity of the bail is provided by ¼" stainless steel cable acting as the hinge point. The bottom is enclosed with a plastic, semi-rigid net liner with 1" openings. The float covers are constructed of 1050 denier nylon ballistic cloth with a marine urethane coating. Each cover is printed with safety pictorials and has high intensity retro-reflective markings. These technical details are from the online company catalog: www.lifesupportintl.com

Burning of the Glasgow Theatre, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Burning of the Glasgow Theatre, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Burning of the Glasgow Theatre, 1845. Destruction of the City Theatre in Glasgow. After raging for fully an hour and a half, and a quantity of water having been thrown in by the engines, the flames subsided, having consumed every article the Theatre contained; and the brick walls and portico alone remained, presenting a most desolate and dreary picture...there is still much to regret in addition to the destruction of the Theatre, although no one sustained the slightest personal injury. No fewer than one hundred persons will be deprived of employment, with the loss, too, of a large amount of their little properties, such as music, musical instruments, and dresses, none of which are insured. The Theatre, which has only been open about four months...Mr. Anderson estimates the loss of scenery, wardrobe, machinery, and properties at £3000, making in all a sum of about £10,000. ...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Burning of Naworth Castle - from a drawing made on the spot, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Burning of Naworth Castle - from a drawing made on the spot, 1844. We regret to record the destruction by fire of this most perfect and interesting of the Border Castles...situated in the parish of Brampton, at a distance of eleven miles north-east of Carlisle...the baronial residence of the Lords of Gilsland, and a seat of the Earl of Carlisle. The distressing intelligence of the fire reached Carlisle...and it was soon confirmed by the ominous smoke that rose from the hills beyond Brampton, amidst which the castle was beautifully situated, on elevated ground, overlooking the Vale of Irthing. A special train was immediately despatched from the station of the Newcastle line, conveying the powerful fire-engines of this borough, with a suitable force of policemen, and in less than an hour after the alarm had reached Carlisle, the engines had arrived at the scene of destruction'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
