'Pilot Knob', 1872. Creator: Henry Duff Linton

'Pilot Knob', 1872. Covered wagons travelling west past Pilot Rock, a volcanic plug in Oregon, USA: 'one sees rising in the blue air the singular form of Pilot Knob, an elevation of the Siskiyou Mountains which, becoming a landmark to immigrants journeying to Oregon, has attained its name. This rock is a great mass of black volcanic substance, which rises perpendicularly from the mountain-crest. The Siskiyou Range has here an elevation of twenty-five hundred feet, and the knob is about five hundred feet higher...The volcanic origin of the mountains all through this region accounts for their singular lack of beauty. The angles are so sharp that the earth which covers their skeletons cannot adhere, and comes off in great land-slides, leaving the mountain-sides bare and exposed'. 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]

His theories of gravity and his three laws of motion were outlined in his greatest work, "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica", (1687) and he is credited with discovering differential calculus.

The 40 ft hydroplane 'Pioneer' under way. Creator: Kirk & Sons of Cowes

The 40 ft hydroplane 'Pioneer' under way. 'Pioneer' was an English boat, owned by the Duke of Westminster, and challenged America for possession of the Harmsworth International Trophy in 1910. Powered by a 12-cylinder Wolseley-Siddeley engine, rated at 400 horsepower, 'Pioneer' initially left the American defender, 'Dixie II', far behind, but unfortunately the engine overheated later in the race. 'Dixie II' took back the lead and retained the trophy.
