The Queen's Visit to Dover Harbour, [Kent], 1850. 'A hazy line of distant smoke, floating over the horizon in the direction of Ostend, grew gradually more distinct, until, at last, the well-defined forms of three steamers opened on the view...The noble proportions of the first, with the Royal standard flying at the main-mast head, the Admiralty flag at the fore, and the red ensign at the staff, declared to the assembled thousands that she bore the beloved object of their engrossing interest, and, by the course the yacht was taking, that it was her Majesty [Queen Victoria]'s intention not only to approach the harbour sufficiently close to give her a fair sight of the beauties of the bay and the points of interest connected with the national works in progress, but that...she was mingling with her subjects on terra firma as nearly and as intimately as she could...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1850.
