The Ship 'Tory', in the West India Docks, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Ship "Tory", in the West India Docks, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Ship "Tory", in the West India Docks, 1845. Sailing ship on the River Thames in London. Murders were allegedly committed on board by the captain: George Johnstone, late master of the ship Tory, from Hong-Kong, was brought before Mr. Broderip, at the Thames Police-court, charged with the wilful murder of Thomas Reason, a seaman, on the high seas, within the jurisdiction of the Admiralty of England...Some of the prisoners, in describing the appalling scenes of bloodshed on board, and the savageness of the captain after passing the island of Ascension, said that Reason was one of those who had fallen a victim to the ferocity of the captain, and that he cut him in a brutal manner with a sword about the head and body'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Steamships on the River Thames: The spirited scene represented in the engraving - the Steam Packet Wharf at London-bridge - may be regarded as the main focus of this extensive means of transit. The number of arrivals and departures at this spot during the day, is truly astonishing; and at the present high steam season, is a constant source of attraction. The vessels are of all degrees of tonnage; and from thence and the adjoining Fresh Wharf, and Cox and Hammond's Quays, steamers start for Greenwich, Woolwich, Sheerness, Gravesend, Herne Bay, Margate, Deal and Dover, Calais, Boulogne, and Ostend, and other places. Although the width of the river is here nearly 700 feet, the constant arrivals and departures occupy a considerable portion of this extent'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Creator: William James Palmer Featured Print

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Creator: William James Palmer

A New-York River-Front, 1874. Sailing ships on the quay in New York Harbour, New York, USA. ...a quaint and picturesque scene, lying but a short distance from the Battery on the East-River side. This is a portion of the town which modern improvement has left untouched; the wharves where the old-fashioned ships from far-off ports discharge their precious cargoes; where merchants of the old Knickerbocker quality conduct their business in dark and unsavory chambers; where the old tars...are wont to assemble; where the very idea of a steamship is profanation - a venerable, quaint, and decaying place, dear to the hearts of the ancient mariners'. 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]
