One Hundred Years Ago 1805-1905
From an oil painting marking the Trafalgar centenary, bearing Holden's signature and the date lower left, reproduced in the plate. It shows a Royal Naval seaman in the former 'Nelson Room' off the Upper Hall in the Painted Hall of the Royal Naval College, Greenwich. Earlier this was the Greenwich Hospital records room, where Nelson's coffin was first placed on its arrival on 23 December 1805 before his lying in state in January 1806.
Artist: Albert W. Holden; Thomas McLean
