Britannia Discovering The Source of The Nile
'Britannia Discovering The Source of The Nile', 1863. Britannia says: Ah, Mr. Nilus! So I've Found You At Last! In July 1862, two British explorers, Speke and Grant, had arrived at the source of the River Nile. This discovery was formally announced at the Meeting of the Royal Geographic Society in May 1863 by the President of the Society, Sir Roderick Murchison. Here, we see Britannia, arriving at the home of Mr Nilus, pushing her way through dense undergrowth to find that gentleman relaxing with his clay pipe, dressed as an Egyptian pharaoh. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 6, 1863.
