Title

Portrait of Captain Cornelius Sowle

Description

Likely from the early 1800s, this portrait was painted in Canton, China, a fairly common practice for captains at the time. Captain Sowle would very soon after be the first to record discovery of Palmyra, naming it after his ship when they crashed on the reefs around it.
