Excerpt from Music, Vol. 14: A Monthly Magazine, Devoted to the Art, Science, Technic and Literature of Music; May, 1898, to October, 1898
Here a lively and novel scene awaited us. Hundreds of somber but graceful gondolas were coming and going, some swiftly, some slowly, but all with the peculiar undulating, swaying glide and dip characteristic of this unique craft, and due to the fact that it is propelled from one side only by a single oar, which the gondolier manipulates standing in the stem, with almost incredible dexterity. Among them a few incongruous steam launches, noisy, smoky, aggressive anach ronisms, sacreligious 1nnovations by an English syndicate, hustled up and down, useful but prosaic, like busy quacking prosaic ducks in a ﬂock of stately swans. To the right the canal wound away to the Rialto bridge, facing us were the illuminated facades of a row of historic palaces, built by the Doges at different epochs, splendid with the architectural pomp and embellishment of every style and school; to the left the long vista of the canal, reﬂecting a thousand lights, stretched to the water-gate of the Adriatic.
