SS Shieldhall

SS ShieldhallHere is the SS Shieldhall, a ship we passed when on our way back to Southampton.

The SS designation indicates she is a steam ship. One of the last steam powered passenger vessels about.

Now there's a massive on-going project.

A visit to their website provides a tantalizing glimpse into how things must be on board, maybe even enough to warrant a trip on her sometime.

As with Lady Jane, I can't help but think how life must have been on board for the crew when she was a working vessel.
