EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Peace, 1862" captures a significant moment in history. Taken at the second International Exhibition held in Brompton, London, it showcases an allegorical figure of Peace designed by Mr Punch. The Duke of Cambridge, representing Queen Victoria who had recently been widowed, inaugurated this grand event. In this thought-provoking cartoon, Peace is depicted as a majestic winged figure seated atop a colossal cannon - an emblematic representation of modern warfare. Clutching the olive branch symbolizing harmony and tranquility, she stands as a powerful reminder amidst the chaos and destruction caused by war. The exhibition attracted an astounding six million visitors during its run from May to October 1862. This photograph serves as a testament to the enduring fascination with art and culture that prevailed during the 19th century. Not only does this image capture historical significance but also highlights the intricate relationship between royalty and peace-building efforts. As Queen Victoria's representative unveils this remarkable statue design for all to see, it emphasizes her commitment towards promoting peace on both national and international platforms. Preserved through Heritage Image Partnership's meticulous collection of heritage images from various sources, this print offers us a glimpse into our past while encouraging reflection upon timeless themes such as war and peace.
