The Whale, c1850. Artist: Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins Featured Print

The Whale, c1850. Artist: Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins

The Whale, c1850. Around the main illustration of harpooning a whale and the whalers being tossed from their boat are vignettes of the uses to which the whale was put after the carcass had been cut up. Spermeciti candles and whale oil were prized for lighting. Whalebone, from the plates from the upper jaw of whalebone whales, was used for corsets and for umbrella frames. Whale meat was eaten. Ambergris was used in perfumes. Parts which were otherwise of no use were applied as fertilizer. From Graphic Illustrations of Animals and Their Utility to Man. (London, c1850)

Conflagration at Sir C. Price's Wharf, Blackfriars, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Conflagration at Sir C. Price's Wharf, Blackfriars, 1845. The London fire brigade attempting to extinguish a fire ...in the warehouses belonging to Sir Charles Price and Co., oil and colourmen...adjoining Blackfriars-bridge...Now the fears of the inhabitants were raised to a painful pitch, lest there should be an explosion of gas - in which case there must have been fearful devastation...The man who lost his life is known to have been working at the engine that was destroyed; in all probability, he missed his way when he retreated, and, instead of jumping into the river, became fixed against a wooden gate, and was compelled to remain in that situation until the flames came upon him, and burnt him to death. A very small portion of his body was found, which was instantly conveyed to the bone house'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
