Hole torn in the hull of RMS Olympic after the collision with HMS Hawke in the Solent, 1911

Hole torn in the hull of RMS Olympic after the collision with HMS Hawke in the Solent, 20th September 1911. The collision took place as Olympic and Hawke were running parallel to each other through the Solent. As Olympic turned to starboard, the wide radius of her turn took the commander of Hawke by surprise, and he was unable to take sufficient avoiding action. Hawke's bow, collided with Olympic's starboard side near the stern, tearing two large holes in Olympic's hull, above and below the waterline which resulted in the flooding of two of her watertight compartments and a twisted propeller shaft. At a subsequent inquiry the Royal Navy blamed Olympic for the incident, alleging that her large displacement generated a suction that pulled Hawke into her side

Arrival of 'The Great Britain' Steam-Ship at New York, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Arrival of "The Great Britain" Steam-Ship at New York, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Arrival of "The Great Britain" Steam-Ship at New York, 1845. The SS Great Britain steamship, designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854. Here we see ...the leviathan vessel passing Fort Hamilton and the Narrows. In the foreground are the crowd of spectators, and the battery of enormous guns....On Monday, the Great Britain was opened to the public at the rate of 25 cents a-head, and 12 cents extra to the engine-room; and thousands poured into New York to see the "big ship"'. She sailed from Bristol to New York ...against foul winds and cross seas, in 14 days, or 354 hours, giving an average speed for the whole voyage of somewhat more than 9 1/4 knots or nautical miles (which is equal to 10 3/4 statute miles) per hour'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The London Bridge Steam Wharf, 1844. Steamships on the River Thames: The spirited scene represented in the engraving - the Steam Packet Wharf at London-bridge - may be regarded as the main focus of this extensive means of transit. The number of arrivals and departures at this spot during the day, is truly astonishing; and at the present high steam season, is a constant source of attraction. The vessels are of all degrees of tonnage; and from thence and the adjoining Fresh Wharf, and Cox and Hammond's Quays, steamers start for Greenwich, Woolwich, Sheerness, Gravesend, Herne Bay, Margate, Deal and Dover, Calais, Boulogne, and Ostend, and other places. Although the width of the river is here nearly 700 feet, the constant arrivals and departures occupy a considerable portion of this extent'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
