'Coast of Mendocino', 1872. Creator: J. G. Smithwick

'Coast of Mendocino', 1872. Rock arch on the shore of the Pacific Ocean, California, USA. 'Nothing can be more tumultuous or less pacific than the waters of the Pacific Ocean along the Mendocino coast...the waves are twelve feet high and a mile in length, and advance with a solemnity of motion which words cannot describe...the boiling fury with which they crash upon the beach and churn the sands is, at first sight, appalling. Around such isolated rocks as those presented by the artist they rage and raven...they have worn the cliffs into strange and wondrous forms, beating out caverns where the lower part is conglomerate rock, and series of arched cellars, into which tuns of sea-weed and debris are thrown...they have invariably scooped out the soft rock, making all kinds of mystic arches, siren rings, and gateways of Poseidon'. 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]

'Chicago', 1874. Creator: Unknown

'Chicago', 1874. Views of Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago, Illinois, USA: 'The City from the Water Works; Mouth of Chicago River'. 'Chicago is situated on the west shore of Lake Michigan...at the mouth of a bayou, or river. The site of the business portion is fourteen feet above the level of the lake...It is divided into three parts by a bayou, called the Chicago River, which extends from the lake-shore about five-eighths of a mile, then divides into two branches, running north and south, nearly parallel with the lake, about two miles in each direction. The river and its branches, with numerous slips, give a water-frontage, not including the lake-front, of thirty-eight miles'. 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.

'Under Trinity Rock, Saguenay', 1874. Creator: James David Smillie

'Under Trinity Rock, Saguenay', 1874. Steamship on the Saguenay River, Quebec, Canada. '...we near Trinity Rock and Cape Eternity, and one of the crew brings a bucket of pebbles on to the forward deck. As these two capes are accounted among the grandest sights of the voyage, there is a flutter of anticipation among the passengers...A slight curve brings us into Trinity Bay...flanked at the entrance by two precipices, each rising, almost perpendicularly, eighteen hundred feet above the river. The steepest is Trinity, so called because of the three distinct peaks on its northern summit...Trinity presents a face of fractured granite, which appears almost white...And now, as the boat seems to be within a few yards of them, the passengers are invited to see if they can strike them with the pebbles...but the stones fall short of their mark, in the water'. 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.
