Church and Belfry at Hogland, Augt 24th 1855 [Finland]
Mounted in album with PAI4673-PAI4674, PAI4676-PAI4716.; No.3. 2. No. 3 in Fanshawe's Baltic and later album, 1843-1883. Captioned by the artist on the album page below the image, as title. Hogland Island lies in the Gulf of Finland, due south of Kotka, and between Tallin and St Petersburg on the southern (Russian) side. In 1788 it was the site of a notable naval battle in the Russo-Swedish War and both in 1854 in August 1855, during the Baltic campaign of the Crimean War, was the temporary headquarters of the British naval detachment under Captain Yelverton of the 'Arrogant'. The people were Finns, and though technically enemies, had little sympathy with the Russians. Yelverton had established good relations with them when Fanshawe made this sketch (and presumably PAI467) while off Hogland in the 'Cossack' in company with his friend Captain Astley Cooper Key in the 'Amphion' (see Fanshawe  p. 328). The masts of one of these ships are visible to the right of the belfry.
