Davis in the Illustrated London News. Also shown are comparisons with Big Ben and the National Gallery to get some sense of the ship's enormous size. Also the turbo-electric machinery which was, according to this illustration, 'sufficiently powerful to drive the whole of the underground railway system of London during rush hours.'

Colour illustration depicting the First Class Lounge of 'Canberra', P&O's super-liner. The ship set off on her maiden voyage to Sydney, Australia in June 1961. Fitting with all modern conveniences, the ship was the biggest to be constructed by the Harland and Wolff shipyard since White Star's 'Britannic' in 1914. 'Canberra' was finally taken out of service in 1997.
