|Description: 'How they found my poor girl' - one of the victims of the Princess Alice disaster of September 1878. Although the image may have appeared stark to Victorian tastes, the depiction is heavily romanticised and sanitised. The bodies washed ashore must have been a fearful sight after a period in the heavily polluted and sewage-filled waters of Galleons Reach.|
