Inner Harbor and Ruins, Timagusko
#281 - Type I

of complete lithograph

While this lithograph is indexed as "Inner Harbor and Ruins, Timagusko" it is titled only with Lew Chew. It shows some of the crew on a hill overlooking a harbor and the ruins of the Castle Timagusko. This castle was described as 4 miles southeast of Napha. One interesting aspect is the character under the tree. That appears to be the artist Heine at work with a sketch pad.

I have noted a several variations between individual lithographs with regard to the image on this lithograph. Thus far I have recorded three similar designs but with minor variations. Some have far more white than others. Often the number and arrangement of ships in the harbors varies. The Okinawan man to the far left is sometimes slightly different and the root on the wall just above him is arranged differently. Perhaps the Sinclair Co. lithograph plant had to redraw the lithograph stone more frequently that other companies found necessary.

I call this lithograph Type I. For pictures of the various types I have recorded, click here.
