Mauch Chunk and Mount Pisgah, 1872. Creator: John J. Harley

Mauch Chunk and Mount Pisgah, 1872. View of steam locomotives and coal barges in the town of Mauch Chunk, the lower terminus of the Mauch Chunk and Summit railroad, Pennsylvania, USA. This was a gravity railway bringing coal to the head of the Lehigh Canal for shipment to the Delaware River, 43 kilometres downstream. It was the first operational US railway of any substantial length to carry paying passengers, and ran from 1828 until 1932. 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.

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.

Coal stove, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

Coal stove, 1951. Creator: Shirley Markham

Coal stove, 1951. Monochrome exercise. 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
