  1. Approaching Buenos Aires docks in 1905

    Histories
    Hi, I'm trying to get a sense of the approach to Buenos Aires docks in a Royal Mail Steam Packet liner such as RMS Magdalena (5372 GRT) in 1905. Would the master take on a pilot - if so, how early? Presumably he'd need two or three tugs too? How did the tugs and bridge signal to each other...
