9780906286203: Ocean liners

Here, then, in this visually extravagant book, is the story of the rise and fall of the ocean liner and its final capitulation to the airplane. It is a story of great entrepreneurs, engineers and designers. From the time of Brunel, the development of the liners was a history of rapid technological advance, as the means of propulsion changed from steam engine to diesel turbine and even electric drive. . .All the aspects of the hundred-year career of the ocean liner are described in author Robert Wall's lucid and entertaining text, illustrated with over 400 illustrations, many of which are in full color.
