The Parsonage, c1780-1825. Creator: Thomas Rowlandson Featured Image

The Parsonage, c1780-1825. Creator: Thomas Rowlandson

The Parsonage, c1780-1825. This drawing of The Parsonage is vigorous, emphatic, and one might say brilliant in Rowlandson's best manner. He gives us an idea of the luxurious habits of the upper classes in the England of that time. With this type of subject it is difficult to establish a line of demarcation between seriousness and humor, for the scene is only one of many where the cultivated are real material for the subjects of Rowlandson's imaginative and prolific pen...Rowlandson's typical and conventional pretty lady holds the attention of her dashing suitor with a selection on the spinet, while on the other hand, a group of over-indulgent and unattractive elders are completely absorbed in themselves'. From "The Watercolour Drawings of Thomas Rowlandson from the Albert H. Wiggin Collection in the Boston Public Library" with commentary by Arthur W. Heintzelman. [Watson-Guptill Publications, Inc. New York, 1947]

United States Men-Of-War passing through a lock, Panama Canal, Panama, 1926

United States Men-Of-War passing through a lock, Panama Canal, 1926. The idea of building a canal between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans was first planned by the French civil engineer and builder of the Suez Canal, Ferdinand de Lesseps. The French began work in 1880, but 9 years later the difficulties posed by the terrain, disease and spiralling costs doomed the project to failure. The United States bought the land in 1904 for $40 million, and proceeded to complete the 80 kilometre long canal between 1904 and 1914. The building of the canal cost the lives of an estimated 25, 000 workers due to accidents and tropical diseases.

The Conquerors, Culebra Cut, Panama Canal, Panama, 1926

The Conquerors, Culebra Cut, Panama Canal, Panama, 1926. The Gaillard (or Culebra) Cut, is a man-made valley cutting through the continental divide in Panama. The cut forms part of the Panama Canal, linking Lake Gatun, and thereby the Atlantic Ocean, to the Gulf of Panama and the Pacific Ocean. It is 12.6 km (7.8 miles) long from the Pedro Miguel lock on the Pacific side to the Chagres River arm of Lake Gatun, with a water level 26 m (85 ft) above sea level. Construction of the cut was one of the greatest engineering feats to have been undertaken in its time; the immense effort required to complete it was justified by the great significance of the canal to shipping, and in particular the strategic interests of the United States.
