Queen Victoria Receiving HMS Resolute

A richly illustrated article, about HMS Resolute, was published in the December 27, 1856 issue of The Illustrated London News.

When the ship arrived at Cowes Harbor (Island of Wight), Queen Victoria visited the famous vessel. (The Queen and her family were spending the Christmas holidays at one of her favorite homes, Osborne House, located on the island.)

The article provides background information about the Resolute and her amazing survival after being locked-in ice for more than a year.
