I've just had a chance to go over the new website and it looks terrific! Congratulations to Jim and Phil on a job well done! "Gare Maritime" is a perfect name for the site and I look forward to reading all the new content.
Coming soon, the second installment of Gare Maritime, which we are hoping will be as well received as the first. Still uncertain, at this point, which articles will appear immediately and which will be held for GM 3, but among the items are:
a 1935 photo album from a Hindenburg crossing.
An affectionate look at maritime Art Deco's last flourish before the deluge.
A collection of snapshots taken on the Normandie's 1939 Rio cruise, as well as a complete deckplan of the ship contributed by "a friend of GM"
An essay graciously contributed by an Andrea Doria survivor.
A truly wonderful glimpse into the unpublished family archive of a socially prominent Lusitania victim.
A sad tale of cowardice at sea.
And much more. As with the last issue, we've gone heavily with images, but this time instead of one 130+ page article we are running several smaller ones on a broader range of subjects.
