'USS Maine', 1911. Artist: Unknown Featured Print

'USS Maine', 1911. Artist: Unknown

'USS Maine', 1911. The USS 'Maine', a pre-dreadnought battleship, exploded and sank in Havana harbour, Cuba, on 15 February 1898, with the loss of 274 of her crew. The ship had been deployed to Cuba to protect American interests during a popular uprising against Spanish colonial rule on the island. Popular opinion in the United States was outraged by the sinking, which was blamed on a Spanish mine. A cofferdam was built around the wreck and water was pumped out, exposing the wreck by late 1911 to allow a second court of inquiry to inspect the damage and ascertain a cause for the sinking.The intact portion of the hull of the Maine was eventually refloated and ceremoniously scuttled at sea on 16 March 1912.

The Tay Bridge disaster, Scotland, 28th December 1879 (1951). Artist: Unknown

The Tay Bridge disaster, Scotland, 28th December 1879 (1951). Designed by the engineer Thomas Bouch and completed in 1878, the Tay Bridge was just under two miles in length and was considered the longest bridge in the world. However, it proved lacking in stability against wind loadings. On 28 December 1879, as the Edinburgh to Dundee train was crossing the bridge during strong gales, the structure collapsed, killing all 75 passengers. A print from 100 Years in Pictures, A panorama of History in the Making, text by DC Somervell, Odhams press Limited, London, 1951.
