Interesting pieces of nostalgia that will never be issued again, & that`s what the site is about, so keep them coming.

Nice cards Stein,
Thanks for the post.
However the top right is the Lusitania which has a funnel deck uncluttered by the cowl vents that adorned the Mauritania.

the Lusi vents were a prototype which resemble an oil drum with a toilet lid on it. The lid could be raised and lowered at will and the lid array could be rotated to face where the wind came from to scoop it down into the stokeholds.

The design was never used again as several were carried away by a large wave in 1910 and the Company wallahs decided they weren't robust enough for the North Atlantic.

thanks again for the post

Martin
