  • NS Savannah, 1959

    Here's one I didn't know about until she featured on the BBC web site today.

    So, you ask, what's that "NS" all about?

    Well, NS = Nuclear Ship.

    According to Wikipedia, she was the first nuclear-powered cargo-passenger ship, and even today, one of only four nuclear-powered cargo ships ever built. She was in service between 1962 and 1972.

    Yes, funnily enough I was just looking at that one from the BBC link. Interesting ship - and some very, errr, interesting, furniture too!
    Cheers,

      Agreed, some '50s/'60s interiors simply don't work any more.

      In the exterior shots, did you notice the bridge? With no wings and set back like that, the visibility must have been awful.

      Viva modern bridge design.
