'Scenes on the North Branch of the Susquehanna', 1874. Creator: James H. Richardson

'Scenes on the North Branch of the Susquehanna', 1874. '...the furnace on Hunlocks Creek, Nanticoke ferry, Danville, the hemlock-gatherers,
the stone-quarry, etc'. Tree-felling, logging, quarrying and mining along the North Branch of the Susquehanna River, Pennsylvania, USA. '...the prevailing industry is mining, all the mountains here containing iron-ore. There is some considerable difficulty in floating down logs to the main stream of the Susquehanna below Clearfield, and most of the timber cut is used for the purpose of smelting or for forges, where the charcoal hammered iron is made...we come to a rough, irregular stone structure, black as ink, and surrounded by rudely-arranged scaffolding of a peculiar form. This is a coal-mine, or rather all that can be seen externally of it. Of iron-furnaces there are many, and of rolling-mills more than a few'. 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]

'Straw hats return to favour', 1930, (1933). Creator: Unknown

'Straw hats return to favour', 1930, (1933). Workers at a milliner's with piles of straw boaters. 'Luton, the centre of the straw hat industry, had suffered from lean years since 1914; khaki was the 'wear' of choice until 1918 and felt hats were the only fashionable summer headgear until 1930, when Edward, the Prince of Wales re-activated the fashion for the straw boater by wearing one.' These hats were popular at summer events such as the Henley Regatta, and were also worn by boys at Eton public school. From "The Pageant of the Century". [Odhams Press Ltd, 1933]
