at first impression and by the scuff marks on her hull, it seems to me as if she is used for unloading and landing cargo from lighters. sure sparks will come up with something good, he usually does

Two wonderful old Liner posters,one English, the other French. Both ships were very much loved by each respective nation but if it were a competition I think the French poster would win it for style.
The Normandie is iconic,that wonderfully curved bow and the sleekness of line, so chic. The Queen Mary is exciting, she looks as solid as Gibraltar and weathered many a storm ,but she could never be a style icon. I love them both for different reasons,

Is that the Queen Mary that is docked in Long Beach, CA? If so, I was on her and she was beautiful. Here's a link to the one I think is the same. HERE

Hi Angel,
Yes that is the same ship that is moored up in Long Beach, we wished that she could have been put on display in the country where she was built but are grateful that the good old US of A found a place for her over there,look after her ,she is precious,

Nice view of Naples Brian. The building on the hill is the castle of St Elmo built in the 1300's on the site of a Norman fort . The Carthusian monastery of San Martino is alongside (this is now a museum)

I bet most of those ships were stunning at one time. It's sad to see the destruction of them. I didn't really understand about that last ship where it says
Quote:
CLASSICA, a giant metal carcass being devoured by "ants", on the beach in March of 2002.
. Are they saying ANTS as in bug ants? Or is this a terminology for something else? I guess I just don't get how "ants" could devour metal.

It looks like at least some people got beautiful pieces of the ships and used them in their homes.

Sometimes you see something that really rings a bell,that happened when I saw this poster. My first thought on seeing it was "I want to be on that ship" Look at the date, a hundred and twelve years later and that still has the ability to hit the hot button,what do you think?

My very first ship,joined her in London on the 18th of December 1958. The trip was just to Hamburg and then return to Birkenhead on the 27th of December. The Captain was Mr Curphy ,the Bosun. Jock Campbell and the Lampy was Vic Turner. A short trip and my introduction to a totally different world from the one I grew up in,happy days,

This is the ship I did my peggying in. I joined her in December 1958 and finally left her in the last week of August 1959. I joined my next ship as a Junior Ordinary Seamen ,and sailed on three more Bluey's until I went over to the Pool to what other companies were like, none of them matched up to Bluey's for food ,accommodation and general welfare ,but nevertheless I sailed on some happy ships with lousy food ,poor accommodation ,and cracking crewmates; chattie but happy they said ,it was true too!

Here is a very famous old clipper ship seen from a very unusual angle, do you recognise her? It is ,of course that marvellous old sea sprite, the Cutty Sark. She is shown running before the wind with her studding sails set.

]The schooner rigged wooden paddle-steamships PRINCE FREDERICK and GAZELLE,of 1823 and1832 respectively,were owned by the Hull Steam Packet Company,the first operators from that, and ran between Hull and London during the months of summer. PRINCE FREDERICK was wrecked on Corton Sands, near Yarmouth in 1835,but the GAZELLE is recorded as having been still in service to Antwerp and Bremen as late as 1850.
This painting is attributed to John Wilson Carmichael, the foremost Tyneside marine artist of the 19th century.
