Burning of the Henry Clay Near Yonkers-While on Her Trip From Albany to New York on Wednesday Afternoon July 28th, 1852.-The rapid spread of the flames forced the passengers into the water. Mothers and children, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters were drowned together, whilst trying to save each other. Little children buffetted the waves in vain for a few moments, and then sunk to rise no more. Persons on board about 500 of which number nearly 100 are supposed to have perished., 1852

Thornton and MacDonald released after the Metro-Vickers Affair, 1933, (1935).
L.C. Thornton and W.L. MacDonald arrive back in England after an international crisis, in which employees of the Metropolitan-Vickers electrical engineering company were tried by the Soviet authorities on charges of economic wrecking and espionage. Public interest was focused on Russia when it was learned that six British subjects had been arrested in Moscow on certain serious charges. Two of the party, Messrs. Thornton and MacDonald, were sentenced to imprisonment, but were afterwards released as a result of diplomatic negotiations. From "The Silver Jubilee Book - The Story of 25 Eventful Years in Pictures". [Odhams Press Ltd., London, 1935]

An Incident in the Park, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham Featured Print

An Incident in the Park, 1952. Creator: Shirley Markham

An Incident in the Park, 1952. 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
