Balloon Engraving Flight Victorian


EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-coloured engraving, titled "Balloon crash CVS01_01_037" takes us back to the enchanting era of Victorian balloon flights. The scene depicted showcases a dramatic moment as a magnificent hot air balloon has unfortunately crashed into the water below. Two figures can be seen anxiously clinging to the basket, their expressions reflecting both fear and determination amidst this unexpected turn of events. As we observe this mesmerizing print from the Cecil Victor Shadbolt collection of lantern slides dating back to 1882-1892, our imagination is transported to that fateful day when adventure met adversity in the skies. A crowd has gathered on the river bank, their faces filled with astonishment and concern for those stranded above. This image encapsulates not only the thrill and wonder associated with early flight but also highlights its inherent risks. The artistry evident in this engraving adds an extra layer of charm and nostalgia to an already captivating scene. The delicate hand-colouring brings life and vibrancy to every detail - from the rippling water beneath the deflated balloon's remnants to each individual within the crowd witnessing this extraordinary event. Preserved by Historic England Archive, this remarkable piece serves as a window into history, reminding us of humanity's relentless pursuit of exploration and discovery during one of Britain's most iconic periods.
