Tepic [Mexico], Augt 12th 1850
Mounted in album with PAI4605-PAI4650, PAI4652-PAI4670.; No.44. Two sections stuck together. No. 44 in Fanshawe's Pacific album, 1849-1852. Fold-out panoramic drawing on two joined sheets, the right one stuck down on the album page, which is captioned by the artist below the image, as title. For the circumstances of Fanshawe being on the Mexican Pacific coast in 1850 to collect 'freight' of silver from local mines, see PAI4648. His 1904 biography states: 'The chief ports for shipping freight were Mazatlan and San Blas (the harbour of Tepic). The principal silver merchants were - at the former place, Torre; and at Tepic, Barron & Forbes... (pp. 261-62). The 'Daphne' was at San Blas, south of Mazatlan, from 6 to 13 August and Fanshawe appears to have spent the 9th to 13th at Tepic (see also PAI4647). This was presumably to arrange for the silver freight coming from there. Tepic is today the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Nayarit.
