Harrisons First Chronometer

This photograph shows Harrison's first chronometer, developed between 1729 and 1735 in response to the British Government offer of a 20, 000 prize to anyone who could solve the problem of an accurate marine timepiece to aid navigation. Harrison did not win the prize with this chronometer, but he claimed the prize in 1761 with his fourth chronometer. To win the prize the timepiece had to be within 30 miles of the truth, in terms of longitude-time, on an actual voyage to the West Indies. This photograph is used in an advertisement for Tampimex Oil, a London-based oil broker. Photograph by Heinz Zinra"

The Naze Tower, Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex

The Naze Tower at Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex. An historic landmark, it was built on the cliffs in 1721 by Trinity House as a navigation mark to guide shipping. The 86-feet tall octagonal tower has played an important part in maritime history and is Grade II* listed, as the only building of its type and era in the UK. Seen here in the days when the only communication to shipping approaching Harwich was by semaphore signalling or a display of flags.
circa 1900
