A Walk Down Memory Lane
Our Maritime Heritage
This website is being offered by
Ian Robertson, Ocean Liner Historian and Activist,
in the preservation of our Maritime History
and is dedicated in loving memory to
who sailed with the White Star Line
35 Years on the Southampton to New York Run.
I invite you to take a walk along the Hudson River
and imagine a time when Ocean Liner Row stretched from
Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan north to 59th Street.
This area of the New York City Waterfront is where all the great Ocean Liners docked after their TransAtlantic Crossings from Europe.
These ships carried thousands of families,
their worldly possessions packed in suitcases,
full of hopes and dreams to start a new life here
at the great Port of New York--
GATEWAY TO AMERICA.
I hope that this precious part of our Maritime History
can be preserved and safeguarded
so that future generations will be able to enjoy
these international treasures.
Let's Get The Word Out
Over the last 30 years, I have devoted time to collecting Ocean Liner Memorabilia, treasures which have come from the international ports of Genoa, La Havre, Cherbourg, Hamburg, Oslo, Stockholm, Rotterdam, London, Liverpool, Southampton as well as from Restaurants, Bars and Shipping Offices that once flourished
on 12th Avenue along the Hudson River
at the Great Port of New York.
This website represents a fraction of my Ocean Liner Steamship Collection,
memorabilia in need of a permanent home port--
preferably along the Hudson River in New York City.
Let's share with Americans and Visitors from around the World
the Magnificence of the Era of TransAtlantic Travel.
