Product Description
Ship History: A wonderful ship departing illustration (16" by 23") from the July 15, 1897, issue of Leslie's Weekly Magazine. The artist was L.L. Roush who was also an avid photographer. I believe he superimposed photographed heads onto many of the subjects in this picture of a crowded pier close to departure time. There is lots to be enjoyed here: couriers and porters hustling by with telegraphs and baggage, an ancient Oriental man shouldering a heavy trunk, newly-weds bustling toward the gangway, a couple engaged in a passionate smooch (!!! as after all this was the Victorian Era), a man with a cigar looking like he hasn't a care in the world, families onboard the nameless ship waving to the crowd, and dual ship telegraphs up on the bridge wing awaiting the master's command. The tongue-in-check caption reads in part, "When the ship finally slips her moorings those on the dock go back to the prosaic life at home and prepare to resist the torrid heat of summer, while those aboard go to their state-rooms and prepare to sick." Leslie's Weekly finished the caption on a more serious note: "It is plainly the duty of every man who can afford the time and money to go to Europe and look upon the Old World civilization with New World eyes of progress. When such a man who has traveled intelligently comes home he is sure to be a better American in every sense." This illustration would look great framed. Good condition.
