    Shorter answer might be who doesn't.
    Whelp, if they did they could use an eight car motorcade to move 250 feet and not tell the tax payers how much they spent doing that. Seems to never change even back in 1901...people power is always available and cheap, right.

    SLACKERS! Looks as cab and it's roof is a popular balcony, along with locomotive boiler mezzanine and frame aisle-ways. Those on floor? No app for pre-sale ticket orders...

    Curious what the tool is this guy is holding? Anyone know and it's use?

    This is the Cherry "B" I remember, My Opo served on her, she was sister ship to Danae. The relevance here gents is they were all steam ships, i'm sure our bloody things had sails as well. I can remember an exercise where we had a steering breakdown and had to hand pump the rudder into position, unfortunately it was officer of the watch manoeuvres with a young osifer, he got absolutely nailed for it, we were only supposed to centre the tiller not try sailing around all night.

    all that nasty distane for accountants over the years, they are getting their own back now as company CEOs, They still cant add up for toffee.
