  1. Lovely post — great idea simply tracing who was on the ship that day. History in the making.

    1. Many thanks. The passenger lists are on subscription sites such as Ancestry and FindMyPast. Quite a lot of the transatlantic crossings of the Queen Mary, the Queen Elizabeth, the United States, etc., carried well known film stars, musicians, businessmen, writers and so on, in first class. They make fascinating reading.

  3. There are three sorts of runabouts that you should think about which are cuddy lodges, deck boats and bowriders.click here

    1. Thanks. The C.P.Snow two cultures dispute must count as one of the most abusive (and amusing) academic arguments ever. A real lesson in how to attack the person rather than the argument. The comedians Newman and Baddiel must surely have had it in mind in writing their "that's you that is" sketches.
