Caption

Sir John Franklin (1786-1847), the British naval officer and Arctic explorer who died with his crew attempting to find the Northwest Passage. In 1845, Franklin set out in search of the Northwest Passage, a sea-route between Canada and the Arctic that links the Atlantic to the Pacific. He never returned. His mysterious disappearance led to the organisation of many more expeditions. In 1859, the ship's remains and a record of the expedition were found. The crew had abandoned the ship when it became trapped in ice. There were no survivors. 19th century engraving.
