Besides, there are crowds of gaily canopied gondolas, with others of hearse-like appearance, which from their sombre hue add greatly to the effect, and give more brilliancy to the surrounding colours ; the gondoliers, fine, tall, handsome fellows, being, as a rule, busy polishing the ornamental brass work with which many of these smoothly gliding boats are decorated. In addition to the rich carved work on the doors and sides of some of these gondolas, most of them have also a peculiar ornament of polished steel at the prow, the origin of which we have not been able to learn. Though of late years the trappings have been of bright colours, the boat is invariably black. Byron's description of the gondola, in "Don Juan," is perfect— " Long covered boat that's common here ; Carved at the prow, built lightly, but compactly, Rowed by two rowers, each called gondolier, It glides along the water looking blackly, Just like a coffin clapt in a canoe Where none can make out what you say or do."
