  2. Histories
    Hi I've been doing some local history research into various aspects of Crosby, Liverpool, and have been studying a tragic event when three young schoolboys drowned at Crosby beach on 17 July 1893. They'd gone on the beach at near to low tide, then got stranded on a sandbank, possibly caught in...

  10. Ile De France

    The aging Ile De France is seen returning to New York with 753 survivors from the sunken Italian Liner Andrea Doria, on the morning of July 26th, 1956. The great French Liner was less than two years away from her own, well-earned retirement.
