Chapel Beach, 1872. Creator: James H. Richardson Featured Image

Chapel Beach, 1872. Creator: James H. Richardson

Chapel Beach, 1872. Waterfall and Chapel Rock (known as La Chapelle by early European explorers), Lake Superior, Michigan, USA. This rock-chapel is forty feet above the lake...a temple, with an arched roof of sandstone, resting partly on the cliff behind, and partly on massive columns, as perfect as the columned ruins of Egypt...the continuous wash of the water in and out through holes in the sides is like the low, opening swell of an organ voluntary...A manitou dwelt in this chapel...On the chapel-beach the Indians performed their rites to appease him'. 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. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1872]

Sunset, Lake Michigan, 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton

Sunset, Lake Michigan, 1874. Sailing ships on Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes of North America. Michigan is the only one of the lakes which is located entirely within the USA. The states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan all border its shores. If you leave Chicago in the evening, you may see one of the lake-sunsets of which so much is heard - a sunset in which the sun descends behind rolling banks of clouds, shedding the most gorgeous hues on the sky and on the sea'. 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]
