Sketch of the cone on Mount Pelée

Sketch of the cone on Mount Pelée
BGS image ID: P823786
 This sketch of the cone of the volcano Mount Pelée on Martinique was sent to John Flett who at the time was a Geologist at the Geological Survey. The creator of the sketch has written his name on the bottom right-hand side. It is not clear but could be W M Hadden, Major RE [Royal Engineers].

The eruption of Mount Pelée in May 1902 killed around 30,000 people and volcanic activity continued until 1905.
