A pictorial history of travel and social life on the great ocean liners, from the beginning of the 19th century up to the 1950s. The book covers the romance and glamour of ocean travel, especially when travelling on luxury passenger ships like the "Queen Mary" and the "Normandie". Archival photographs reveal the flavour of travelling onboard ship and emphasize the contrast between the luxury of first-class travel and the discomfort of the steerage class. The author has also published "The Great Days of Yachting", "Fastnet" and "Shipwreck".
