Gigantic to Exceed Aquitania

Two of the greatest ships are, at present, being built on the Clyde; one the Aquitania, and the other the cruiser Tiger.
The Aquitania, when launched, will be the largest vessel in the world, measuring close upon 900 feet in length.
She will, however, subsequently be superseded in the possession of that title by the Gigantic, building at Belfast. [page. 4]
