Supposed case of a steamer pursued by an enemy, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Supposed case of a steamer pursued by an enemy, 1844. Testing explosives designed by Captain Warner, demonstrating: ...the effect produced by a line-of-battle ship following in her wake, which is laid with these shells. We do not know whether Captain Warner lays claim to any new chemical discovery of an explosive power; but, at all events, he has discovered means of handling with impunity to himself, the most deadly and destructive combustibles'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

The 'John O'Gaunt' being towed to destruction, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The "John O'Gaunt" being towed to destruction, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The "John O'Gaunt" being towed to destruction, 1844. Explosion of a ship at Brighton by Captain Warner who ...put to the test his alleged power of destroying ships at sea, completely and instantaneously...an immense cloud, seemingly of smoke of an unusually white complexion, but really of spray, was seen to ascend from the vessel [the John of Gaunt]...she seemed to be enveloped in a cloud of smoke...the main and mizen masts were seen to fall over the vessel into the sea. A few seconds more, and a rumbling sort of noise, which it is difficult to describe, was heard to proceed from the ship, and ere yet the sound had died on the ear the vessel was a complete wreck. She went almost instantaneously to pieces, no trace of her being visible but the top of her foremast'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

St George's, Bloomsbury, 1844. Creator: Unknown

St George's, Bloomsbury, 1844. This singular structure, situated in Hart-street, Bloomsbury-square, is one of the fifty new churches appointed to be built at the public expense, by the Act of Parliament passed in the tenth year of the reign of Queen Anne; it was consecrated in 1731...it was designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor...its most admired feature is the magnificent portico of eight Corinthian columns...Walpole calls the steeple a masterpiece of absurdity...Above this stage commences a series of steps, gradually narrowing, so as to assume a pyramidal appearance, the lowest being ornamented at the corners by lions and unicorns, and supporting at the apex of the steps, on a short column, a statue in Roman costume of George I...Elsewhere it has been remarked that Hawksmoor has literally made the king the head of the church'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
