In honour of our move to the New World a look into the golden age of steamship travel.
Looks a little less crowded than some of the economy cabins of a few airlines that will remain nameless.

MTN: Maybe you enjoyed your time here because you knew to have a deadline so you didn't waste time.
Me: No caro I enjoyed it here because I never thought about the deadline.... it was going to go on forever and I would see everything and do everything...
I tend to forget the things I don't want to know about ....
|In New York's Times Square a white-clad girl clutches her purse and skirt as an uninhibited sailor plants his lips squarely on hers. - was the caption given Eisenstaedt's photo when it appeared in Life Magazine.|
|A different angle - a different view - Victor Jorgensen's photo of the same moment doesn't quite have the same cache as the more famous version. Because Jorgensen worked for the US Government his photo is in the public domain.|
|Leo - the Lion: The king of the beasts therefore the kingly nature of Christ; that and the old belief that a lion cub died at birth and after three days the male lion brought it|
back to life by licking and breathing on it. That is probably self-explanatory.
|Aquila - the Eagle: The symbolism there could be referring to the eagle of|
St John the Evangelist or equally to the majestic bird ascending to the heavens
on strong wings.
|Agnus - the Lamb: the most common, and best known symbol, of the Eucharist|
is the lamb of God. Based on the tradition of offering a lamb
as sacrifice ergo Christ the sacrificial lamb.
|Pelicanus - the Pelican: It was an ancient belief that the pelican fed it young by|
tearing flesh from its own breast and feeding them with its blood.
A symbol then of the blood of Christ?
