A fine set."London has no associations so interesting as those connected with its literary men. To the cultivated reader the Temple owes its greatest charm to the fact that it was the birthplace of Lamb, the home of Fielding, and that it contains Goldsmith's grave. Addison and Steele have hallowed the now unholy precincts of Charter House Square and Covent Garden; the shade of Chatterton still haunts Shoe Lane; Fleet Street, to this day echoes with the ponderous tread of Dr. Johnson; and the modest dwelling that was once Will's Coffee House is of far more interest now than all that is left of the royal palaces of Whitehall and St. James…" (Introduction).Little is known about the London firm of Jeremiah Larkins other than the firm was started in 1879 and from 1881-1885 operated from 9 Brooke Street, Holborn, EC, then from 1886-1891 from 21 Charles Street, Hatton Garden, EC., and from 1892-1899 from 23 Charles Street, Hatton Garden, EC.

        Three vintage photographs documenting the detonation of Flood Rock in the East River, October 10, 1885

      [New York], 1885. Three vintage albumen prints on mounts, captioned beneath the image in type, "Raab, Photo. / 1536 3d Ave, N.Y." each dated Oct. 10th 1885 and titled "Before the Explosion ?," "Explosion of ?," and "After the Explosion of Flood Rock". 3 vols. Each 6-1/8 x 9-3/8 inches (visible). Matted and framed, some light spotting to images and matte. An extraordinary photographic record of the controlled detonation of Flood Rock in the narrow tidal straight called Hell Gate in New York City's East River. The detonation was part of a nearly 70-year project to improve the navigability of the Hell Gate channel - found at the meeting of the East River, Harlem River, and Long Island Sound. The explosion of Flood Rock, which was some nine acres in area, required 300,000 pounds of dynamite. It was one of the largest man-made explosions in the pre-atomic era - the blast was felt as far away as Princeton, New Jersey and created a geyser of water 250 feet tall. Fifty thousand spectators lined both shores of the East River to view the spectacle.
