Channel tunnel Featured Print

Channel tunnel

Channel tunnel. Historical artwork of a tunnel beneath the English Channel through which Napoleon's troops are moving to invade England. The possibility of a tunnel under the Channel was first put to Napoleon in 1802. This cartoon was drawn in 1804, after the resumption of war between England and France in 1803. The French are also attacking by sea and by hot air balloon (the Channel was first crossed by hot air balloon in 1785). The English defence includes ships and men flying from kites with rifles. A semaphore system is operating from telegraph towers on the French side. From La Telegraphie Historique by Alexis Belloc (1888)

Ascent of Mr Green's Balloon, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Ascent of Mr Green's Balloon, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Ascent of Mr Green's Balloon, 1845. On Monday evening, Mr. [Charles] Green made a very beautiful ascent in his monster Nassau Balloon, from the grounds of Cremorne House, Chelsea [in London], which were crowded with company to witness the spectacle. There was on the occasion of this ascent some novelty to attract the spectators and to amuse them. In addition to Mr. Green...there was amongst the "intrepid aeronauts" the celebrated Mr. Thomas Matthews, the Clown of Drury Lane Theatre, who immediately before the ascent favoured his companions in the car, and the thousands of persons who surrounded it, with the favourite ballad of "Hot Codlins". Mr. Matthews was equipped in full theatrical costume; the rest of the party in clothes more appropriate for an aerial trip'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
