Sailing and Soaring

The Great Liners and the Great Skyscrapers

William H Miller

Beginning with New York’s Singer Building, which at 612 feet on completion in 1908 was the world’s tallest building, and Cunard’s Lusitania and Mauretania, both Blue Riband winners for their astonishing speed, this book compares nine of the most iconic Manhattan skyscrapers with many of the great transatlantic liners, including Queen Mary and Allure of the Seas, exploring the history of their construction, interior design, various uses and regrettable, though inevitable, demise.
