Description

The notorious Bay of Biscay, described by Byron as "sleepless" and its shores as "extremely univiting" by contemporary commentators, was a feat to be endured by early passengers. The 'Berlingas' or 'Burlings', a small group of rocky islands off the Portuguese Coast, are depicted here as sketched from an outward bound P&O steamer in 1850.
