'The Ark is Launched on Merseyside, 13th April, 1937', (1942). Creator: Unknown

'The Ark is Launched on Merseyside, 13th April, 1937', (1942). 'Her huge bows tower to her iron flight deck 800 feet long and 94 across. She took three years and three months to build and cost £2,330,000.' A British Royal Navy aircraft carrier of the Second World War, 'HMS Ark Royal' was designed to carry a large number of aircraft, and had two hangar deck levels. She was launched in Liverpool by Lady Maud Hoare, wife of Sir Samuel Hoare, then First Lord of the Admiralty. 'Ark Royal' was involved in the first aerial and U-boat kills of the war, in operations off Norway, in the search for the German battleship 'Bismarck', and took part in the Malta Convoys. A German submarine torpedoed her on 13 November 1941 and she sank the following day. Only one of her 1,488 crew members was killed. From "Ark Royal". [His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1942]

'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]

'London in Peril of Starvation', 1912, (1933). Creator: T E Joy

'London in Peril of Starvation', 1912, (1933). London dockers went on strike when Lord Devonport, head of the Port of London Authority, refused to agree to their demands. Ben Tillett, socialist trade union leader and politician, said: 'Hunger and poverty have driven the dockers and shipworkers to this present resort'. Fears of resulting food shortages caused the army to be brought in to guard convoys of supplies. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]
