    I see no horses. I wonder if the other three men are on the traces and employed as cart pullers. There must have been huge amounts of "dust" when these carts got their name.

    Every time the subject of the Britannic surfaces, I'm reminded of the story of Violet Jessop...

    Violet Constance Jessop (2 October 1887 5 May 1971) was an Irish Argentine ocean liner stewardess and nurse who is known for surviving the disastrous sinkings of both RMS Titanic and her sister ship, HMHS Britannic, in 1912 and 1916, respectively. In addition, she had been on board RMS Olympic, the eldest of the three sister ships, when it collided with a British warship Called HMS Hawke, in 1911.

    Full story here...

    Oh boy, that is one engine room I'd love to see in action, today they are mainly big diesels or steam turbine's, BORING! But all those reciprocating rods and the sounds of life you can actually see everything, it all comes to life.
