SS FRANCE/BLUE LADY

Sad indeed, but not as sad as the loss of crew in the boiler explosion that ended her cruise career. From that point of view, it would have been better to have called it a day sooner, rather than thrash her old boilers beyond their reasonable lives.

Sad but facinating image. She served well and was basically worn-out as well as being no longer competetive. The boiler explosion did her but she would have been withdrawn from US service sooner rather than later.
