Aurora

Amazed and pleased there is one left and being looked after.

Thought you may be interested in the Aurora;
I was sent this postcard from Leningrad in 1980.
Cruiser Aurora was started 1897; launched 1900.
She took part in the Tsunima. Now part of The Navy Museum, she is located
on the Petrogradskaya Embarkment of the Bolshaya Nevka River.

Thanks Barney .... I've had that card for a while, now, just seeing the graceful Caroline, reminded me I had it. Now we know her story.

Tell me, does anyone know why ships of the period had the particular
cut of the bows; and why ships no longer have this?
