[785] The Route Of The Overland Mail To India  1850-1852 (made)

This print is one of a series of thirty-two published in a volume entitled 'The Route of the Overland Mail To India'. The prints are believed to be by the artist Henry Fitzcook, a painter of history and biblical scenes. The series of prints are based on scaled-down drawings of the Diorama 'Overland Route of the Mail from Southampton to Calcutta' created by Thomas Grieve and William Telbin. The Diorama consisted of a series of thirty full-size, painted scenes inspired by the ports and places encountered by P&O (the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company founded in 1837) passengers on their travels overseas, to be seen on a revolving stage accompanied by commentary and music. The diorama was a great success and was recreated in an album of watercolours. The engraved version of the publication appeared in 1850 to 1852.
