The new tea warehouses, London Docks, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The new tea warehouses, London Docks, 1845. 'The New Warehouse is situate at the West Quay, on the North-west side of the Docks, and very near the principal entrance from East Smithfield, on the site of the original Superintendent's Office and Baggage-warehouse. It was commenced in May, 1844, and completed in July last, at the cost, we understand, of £100,000. The entire building is in height five stories, of eleven feet each, exclusive of the vault, and is much loftier than any of the London Dock warehouses. The principal, or Tea Warehouse, is 290 feet in length, and 104 feet in width. The superficial area of the Ground floor, exclusive of walls and staircases, being the space available for stowage, &c., is 26,040 square feet. The cubical contents of the space for stowage in the Warehouse is 1,269,450 feet, or about 11,000 tons of ordinary produce; and the capacity, if stowed with tea, would be for 120,000 chests'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII.

The Ark is Launched on Merseyside, 13th April, 1937, (1942). Creator: Unknown

The Ark is Launched on Merseyside, 13th April, 1937, (1942). Her huge bows tower to her iron flight deck 800 feet long and 94 across. She took three years and three months to build and cost £2,330,000. A British Royal Navy aircraft carrier of the Second World War, HMS Ark Royal was designed to carry a large number of aircraft, and had two hangar deck levels. She was launched in Liverpool by Lady Maud Hoare, wife of Sir Samuel Hoare, then First Lord of the Admiralty. Ark Royal was involved in the first aerial and U-boat kills of the war, in operations off Norway, in the search for the German battleship Bismarck, and took part in the Malta Convoys. A German submarine torpedoed her on 13 November 1941 and she sank the following day. Only one of her 1,488 crew members was killed. From "Ark Royal". [His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, 1942]

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]
