Portrait print circa 1892 of explorer Christopher Columbus - the "discoverer" of America in 1492. Columbus (c1451 - 1506) left the Spanish port of Palos on August 3 1492 with three ships - a carrack called Santa Maria, also known as Gallega (the Galician), plus two smaller caravels called Pinta (the Painted) and Santa Clara, nicknamed Nina. He famously reached the Americas on October 12 1492 - landing on a small island in the modern day Bahamas and naming it San Salvador. Print by Currier & Ives, based on a painting by Emilie Chaese.
