Nickel's New Railway, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Nickel's New Railway, 1845. 'Messrs. Keene and Nickels have just patented a novel system of Railway Locomotion, which is founded on principles stated not to have been hitherto applied to the communication of mechanical motion. The patentees have constructed a working model of their invention in York road, Waterloo-road, which has been already inspected by several persons of scientific eminence...The proprietors term their system a new Atmospheric Method of Propulsion; but this name is unphilosophically incorrect. Atmospheric Air is, certainly, the propulsive agent; but its elasticity is the property made available in this invention; so that all gaseous bodies might be made serviceable for the above purpose. In short, as observed in the Railway Record, "the system is founded on the expansive force of a compressed aeriform fluid; and might, with propriety, be designated, Propulsion by the Expansion of Condensed Air or Gas"'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.

While searching for the source of the Nile in the late 1860s he became seriously ill and went missing. Although he was found, by Henry Morton Stanley in 1871, Livingstone never fully recovered from his illness and died in Bangwelulu, Zambia. Lantern slide

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]
