Description

Excerpt from In Mediterranean Lands: The Cruise of the Friesland, 1895 From the water goes up, volumes of steam as from a sea of smoking lava. The piers along the city front are half hidden by drifting fog. Spires and sky-climbing blocks float in billowy clouds, now appearing in bursts of frosty sun-shine, now blotted out and lost. Liberty - unlovely under the garish light of day and a thing of beauty only when night makes her gracious mission plain - shivers as we pass, lifting her naked arm and quenched torch high up into the pitiless air, as in dumb protest against her useless martyrdom.
