Watkins Tower - Proposed Design - Wembley Park, London Featured Print

Watkins Tower - Proposed Design - Wembley Park, London

Programme for a series of musical concerts and entertainments at Wembley Park, London in July 1894 (Wembley Park officially opened to the public in May 1894). The programme features an illustration of (an impression of the finished) Watkin's Tower, a partially completed iron lattice tower. Its construction was an ambitious project to create a 358-metre (1, 175 ft)-high visitor attraction in the Park, led by the railway entrepreneur Sir Edward Watkin. Marketed as the "Great Tower of London", it was designed to surpass the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The tower was never completed and it was demolished in 1904. The site of the tower is now occupied by the English national football ground, Wembley Stadium. Date: 1894

Ecclesiastical Ruins on Inniscaltra, or Holy Island, Lough D Featured Print

Ecclesiastical Ruins on Inniscaltra, or Holy Island, Lough D

Ecclesiastical Ruins on Inniscaltra, or Holy Island, Lough Derg, Co. Galway, after Sunset: This Island is One of Great Historic Interest ... Petrie (c. 1863). Watkins, Bartholomew Colles 1833-1891. Inniscaltra, also called Holy Island, is one mile south-east of the village of Mountshannon, in the stretch of Lough Derg which is situated in Co. Clare (not in Co. Galway, as stated in the title). The monastery on the island was founded by St Caimin in the seventh century but was burned by the Vikings in 836 and 922 AD; however, St Caimin?s church continued in use until the fourteenth century. Buildings remaining include five churches, an anchorite?s cell and a round tower. Watkins specialized in Irish mountain scenery, such as in the Killarney area and monastic ruins and castles in various parts of the country. His works are simply and realistically executed, with a strong feeling for light; witness the magnificent sunset effects of this painting. The work was shown at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1866, as was another version of the picture, the whereabouts of which is unknown. Date: 1863 (circa)
