Good design and typesetting here and some standard images....Art, though? Memory tells me that pages like these were quite common in mags etc. at one time. Donald

Small point of interest, yacht Titan as illustrated was owned by Andrew Weir (Lord Inverforth) of the Bank Line.

Art ? I don't call this art....should be in a book/news-article/postcard section if there was one.
Can't find any art on here...all postcard etc uploads lately.....rant lol
More Art would be getting posted if it was a MARITIME ART section of just paintings and drawings that people have done themselves...why only on this site do we have all this stuff going on here and the ART gets lost.
It irrks even more when it isn't going on the model section for example- lucky them I say ...why here though ???
confused

Thanks for posting this advert, I am also intrigued about the yacht Titan, WLH thanks for posting. It does become artistic when it displays images of Nostalgic era. I remember seeing a photo of Andrew Weir, (Lord Inverforth) always well dressed and he wore glasses. Am sure Titan was built by Yarrow and Co, because Bank Line originated in Glasgow, as did the Weir Family. A brilliant history lesson is unfolding before our eyes, I also believe, the Baltic Exchange building was built by Lord Inverforth, which has since been demolished and been replaced by the Gherkin.

Jim.
