RMS Transvaal Castle by G. H. Davis Featured Print

RMS Transvaal Castle by G. H. Davis

Detailed cross-section drawing of the new mailship for the Union-Castle fleet, R.M.S. Transvaal Castle, which made her maiden voyage from Southampton to South Africa on 18 January 1962. She was built by John Brown's on the Clyde and launched a year before that by Lady Cayzer, wife of Sir Nicholas Cayzer, Chairman of the Union-Castle Line. The ship could carry more than 700 passengers and was 760 feet long and 90 feet wide from port rail to starboard rail amidships. There was no first, second or tourist class and every passenger had run of her public rooms which included a 200 seat cinema, a sunlit swimming pool, an Elizabeth Arden beauty salon and a gymnasium. En route to South Africa, during the 13 and a half day voyage, the ship stopped at Las Palmas, Port Elizabeth and East London on the way there and Madeira instead of Las Palmas on its return route. Date: 1962

Labour Union Poster - Great London Dock Strike Featured Print

Labour Union Poster - Great London Dock Strike

Labour Union Poster Commemorating the Great London Dock Strike of 1889. This industrial dispute involving dock workers in the Port of London broke out on 14 August 1889, resulting in a victory for the 100,000 strikers and establishing strong trade unions amongst London dockers, one of which became the nationally important Dock, Wharf, Riverside and General Labourers' Union. The strike is widely considered a milestone in the development of the British labour movement, symbolising the growth of the New Unions of casual, unskilled and poorly paid workers, in contrast to the craft unions already in existence. The strike helped to draw attention to the problem of poverty in Victorian Britain and the dockers' cause attracted considerable public sympathy. Date: 1889

Creating model for flight simulator, RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire Featured Print

Creating model for flight simulator, RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire

Man working on a model for a flight simulator for use at RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire. Before computers, flight simulators used actual models of different airfields in order to train pilots. The model being created here was of the RAF base on Gan Island in the Indian Ocean. A colour TV camera relayed a picture of the scale model to a screen in the mock up of a Hercules Transport aircraft. Detail on the model was so precise that final work had to be carried out under a magnifying lens. Date: circa 1976
