Resource/art: even more 18th century naval naughtiness!

3 July, 2007 at 11:57 pm 2 comments

You knew this had to come… even more naval naughtiness, including Emma Lady Hamilton, horny mermaids, an interesting view on launching boats and something I’d call “WTF?” – have fun!

All drawings were done by Thomas Rowlandson (regulars of my LJ will remember him with great fondness for… Nelson’s pipe. Like, totally the pipe).

Nobody knows how to launch a boat like the Royal Navy – we better ignore the figure on the left, who wears a dress, but seems to be male, and all things considered, I’d rather be in Kansas, Dorothy.

Rowlandson
Right. If that kind of mermaid flopped on deck to have a little chat with Gillette, I’m not surprised he was in such a cheerful mood…

Rowlandson
I have no words. And no idea what on earth the artist had been smoking when he sat down to draw this thingy. Whatever it was – steer clear of it, ladies and gentlemen, it must have been evil!
Have fun!
