The swimming pool on board the Berengaria Featured Print

The swimming pool on board the Berengaria

A "Bath Club" at Sea: the modern liner's land-like buildings. Roman luxury aboard a giant liner crossing the Atlantic: a swimming bath modelled on that of Pompeii built of tiles and marble, with massive pillars and a glass roof. The swimming pool on board the Cunard ocean liner, Berengaria measuring 64 feet long by 41 feet wide, constructed of tiles and marble with mosaic work and fittings of bronze. Round the sides is a colonnade of massive pillars, supporting a glass roof which rises to the height of three decks above the bottom of the tank. Over the dressing rooms was a wide, upper gallery for spectators. A continuous cascade of fresh water entered the pool from a cascade at one end. The depth was graduated and 9 feet at its deepest. The ILN comments on the air of modern liners being akin to 'a palatial building on land' and likens the pool to a similar one on board the White Star liner Majestic. Date: 1922

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
