-The SS United States-

This is the SS United States shown here doing a cool 35 knots (over 40mph) as she pounds up the English Channel at Blue Riband speed during her record east bound run from New York to Cornwall, England.

This photo captures the essence of power as the Big 'U' smashes the Queen Mary's best time by over 10 hours on her maiden voyage in July, 1952, despite having to cut through a 60 mph gale blowing off Bishop Rock.

A true 'Ocean Greyhound', the United States was by far the fastest liner ever built: with 4 sets of Westinghouse Turbines mashing out a shaft horsepower of 241,785 (this information was finally declassified in 1968) the United States was the last liner to ever hold the Transatlantic Speed Record.

Finally, after a 100 year wait, since the Arctic last held it a century earlier, the Riband was back in America for good.

It simply doesn't get any better.

This new Black & White Print of the original archive is on Heavy Premium Glossy Photo Paper, Large 11" x 8" format, (exact dimensions may vary) in flawless condition.

Please visit our store and look in the SS United States 'Supership' Category to see more great Posters and Prints of the fastest Super Liner ever built.
