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

A diagram of the proposed Charing Cross Bridge Featured Print

A diagram of the proposed Charing Cross Bridge

Plans for a new double-decker bridge at Charing Cross, designed by Sir Owen Williams and at the time recently approved by a royal commission. The bridge was intended to replace the Hungerford Bridge, dating from the 19th century. The idea was that traffic could pass on the top-deck while trains could cross the Thames on the level below. The plan was ultimately scrapped in 1931.

Proposed Channel bridge, 1889 Featured Print

Proposed Channel bridge, 1889

Diagrams demonstrating a 24 mile long superstructure bridge to cross the Channel, proposed in 1889 as an alternative to the long-debated Channel Tunnel. The bridge was suggested by M. Schneider of Creuzot and M. Hersent, ex-President of the French Civil Engineer's Society and would have crossed the Channel from a point near Cape Grisnez to a point near Folkestone, therefore passing over the shallowest parts of the Channel. Date: 1889
