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.
