Hi All,

Just thinking - exactly a century ago today, at 4:15 PM on September 20th, this great liner was launched.

Best,
Eric

At just after 1615, 100 years ago today MAURETANIA was launched. To celebrate the event the Discovery Museum, Newcastle has a Mauretania Centenary Exhibition from today until the 19th November.

Sorry, the link to the second site does not appear to have worked. I'll try again-

http://www.tyneandweararchives.org.uk

Well, the link to the site's homepage has worked, but I'm afraid I can't access the actual page about the Mauretania centenary, so just click on the link above, go to "news" > 2006 > £38k Funding for Centenary of Mauretania Launch

All the best,

Lucy

Thanks Lucy.
The exhibition will be great and includes some wonderful pieces and photographs. I have worked closely with the museum folk in the production of my book, which should be out soon - slight delay as we received some brilliant new photos which had to be included.
best wishes,
Peter
