Diving bell used for salvage operations on the wreck of H.M.S.Thetis

John Frederick Fitzgerald De Roos

Maritime scene showing a diving bell stage or platform suspended from a hawser and cables stretched across the cove at Cape Frio [Cabo Frio] in the State of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where H.M.S Thetis sank. The platform is manned by members of the crew of H.M.S Algerine, two of whom are operating a fire-engine hand-pump supplying air to a diving bell. The bell is being lowered through a trap-door in the platform and the feet of a diver manning the bell are just visible. Two boats can be seen below the platform and there is a sketched rough outline of the rocky heights of the cove. The Royal Navy ship H.M.S.Thetis struck rocks and sank off the coast of Brazil in December 1830 carrying a large cargo of gold and silver. Illustration from the paper "An account of some operations executed at Cape Frio by the officers and crew of H.M.S. Algerine for the purpose of raising a part of the stores &c lost in H.M.S Thetis" by Commander J F F de Roos, RN. John Frederick Fitzgerald de Roos was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1831.

Original: ink on paper. 1834
