|Caption||Edward Eyre. In 1841 twenty five year old Edward John Eyre trekked from Adelaide in South Australia to Albany. This was the first east-to-west crossing of the vast Australian continent. The caption of our picture is: Desperately they searched the horizon. There must be a ship somewhere! Yes - there were the tall masts of a whaling vessel. Original artwork for illustration on p11 of Look and Learn issue no 211 (29 January 1966). Lent for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.|
