'The Spouting Cave', 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton

'The Spouting Cave', 1872. The 'Spouting-Rock' on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean at Rhode Island, USA: 'After a southeasterly storm, the apparatus is in working-order; and, during the "season", multitudes assemble there to see the intermittent fountain play. The construction of the opening beneath is such that, when it is nearly filled and a heavy wave comes rolling in, the pent-up waters can find relief only by discharging themselves through a sort of funnel into the air. It is, however, a somewhat treacherous operator: for a long time there may be no spouting done; and, even when the waves roll in from the right quarter, it is not easy to tell just when the horn intends to blow. If the interesting couple depicted in our sketch remain standing much longer where they are, before they know it the fountain may spout up some forty or fifty feet, and they will go home with drenched clothes and a wet skin. But the ocean-view is, at this spot, so indescribably grand after a storm, that the temptation to linger as near the edge of the rocks as possible is almost irresistible, and we have seen many a gay company pay the watery penalty'.

'Under the Catskill Falls', 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton

'Under the Catskill Falls', 1874. The Kaaterskill Falls on Spruce Creek, New York State, USA. '...the torrent makes a second leap over huge bowlders...dashing itself into foam in its headlong fury...There is nothing more beautiful in American scenery than this water-fall as it leaps from the lofty height and dashes into spray in the hollow basin below. Wearing away several yards deep into the cliffs, it has left a pathway all around the Fall, from which you have a fine view...when the stream above is swollen, through a veil of glittering drops dripping from the rocks above....Standing on the narrow pathway, you look through the great white veil of falling waters, leaping out over your head and sending up clouds of spray that float off down the gorge. Sometimes, when the sun is shining brightly, a dancing rainbow will keep pace with you as you creep around the semicircle beneath the rock'.

'The Catskills, Sunrise from South Mountain', 1874. Creator: Samuel Valentine Hunt

'The Catskills, Sunrise from South Mountain', 1874. The Catskill Mountains, part of the larger Appalachian Mountain range, in southeastern New York State, USA. 'Clustering closely together, these isolated mountains, to which the early Dutch settlers gave the name of "Catskills", approach within eight miles of the river, and, like an advanced bastion of the great rocky wall, command the valley for a considerable distance, and one of the most striking features in the landscape. On the western side, they slope gradually toward the central part of the State of New York, running off into spurs and ridges in every direction. On the eastern, however, they rise abruptly from the valley to a height of more than four thousand feet, resembling, when looked at from the river, a gigantic fist with the palm downward, the peaks representing the knuckles, and the glens and cloves the spaces between them'.
