Goodwin Sands

Figure descriptions
The lifeboat, Aid of Ramsgate, saves the passengers of the London Fusilier. Fire, smoke, and water fill the spaces between the two boats. One sailor throws a bundled baby toward the lifeboat; a second sailor reaches his arms out to catch the baby. Another sailor guides a woman toward the lifeboat. He supports her while holding out a lantern. Some of the passengers sit safely in the lifeboat. The sailors on both boats all wear primitive personal flotation devices as they perform the rescue. Full-page illustration contained within a wide, two-part border. The inner border is dark and of medium weight; the outer border is wide and lightly shaded with a pattern of dense dots.
