UK, 2004 Medallic Medal, Commemorating "SPANNING THE OCEANS" Issued by the Royal Mint.


SPANNING THE OCEANS FROM STEAMSHIPS TO OCEAN LINERS. In the late 1830s the first vessels crossed the Noth Atlantic ,by the unceasing aid of steam' and the days of sailing liners were numbered. Then as now, speed was of the essence, but as competition increased, shipping companies realised that they had to offer more. The classic ocean liners of the 1930s provided unprecedented levels of comfort and entertainment, setting the standards for those that would follow, like "Queen Mary 2" proudly brings this heritage into the 21st century.
