The 'Enterprise' and 'Investigator' surrounded by ice, Barro

Engraving showing the 'Enterprise' and 'Investigator' surrounded by pack ice in Barrow's Straits, September 1849. These two ships were used by Sir James Clark Ross's Expedition of 1848-1849 to search the Arctic for signs of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition of 1845. In 1845 the British Admiralty sent two polar exploration ships, HMS 'Erebus' and HMS 'Terror', to look for the Northwest passage round the northern coast of Canada. The expedition, commanded by Sir John Franklin, disappeared from view late in 1845 and none of the men were ever seen again. In fact the ships made it to the King William Island region, then got stuck in the ice. With supplies running out the surviving crew abandoned ship and headed south. However, none made it to safety and it is assumed all died from disease, exposure or starvation. From 1848 onwards a number of relief expeditions were sent to find Franklin, but it was only in 1859 that Francis Leopold McClintock was able to confirm Franklin's fate.

The End of Sir John Franklin's Arctic Expedition, 1845

Engraving showing the end of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated Arctic expedition of 1845, entitled 'They Forged the last link with their lives'. This engraving was taken from a painting by W. Thomas Smith, exhibited in the Royal Academy in 1896. In 1845 the British Admiralty sent two polar exploration ships, HMS 'Erebus' and HMS 'Terror', to look for the Northwest passage round the northern coast of Canada. The expedition, commanded by Sir John Franklin, disappeared from view late in 1845 and none of the men were ever seen again. In fact the ships made it to the King William Island region, then got stuck in the ice. With supplies running out the surviving crew abandoned ship and headed south. However, none made it to safety and it is all died from disease, exposure or starvation. This image shows the end of that desperate attempt to reach safety. From 1848 onwards a number of relief expeditions were sent to find Franklin, but it was only in 1859 that Francis Leopold McClintock was finally able to confirm Franklin's fate.

Queen Victoria in Nice - French satire on her donkey cart

Queen Victoria in Nice, France - a rather (!) disrespectful late 19th century French satirical caricature. In 1882, Queen Victoria began her winter affair with the Cote dAzur, she would arrive bearing extensive food and drink supplies, a multitude of staff, Highland soldiers and Abdul Karim, her Indian attendant (highly unpopular with all bar the queen herself). The queen would ride out frequently, either in a carriage or a cart pulled by 'Jacquot', a donkey she had rescued, half-starved, from a peasant (as lampooned on this card) and which she subsequently took back and forth to England with her. (Jacquot lived out his life at Windsor, after Victorias death.). Date: circa 1890s
