The Steele Maiden Fashion, Women, Women’s top

While every attempt at accuracy has been made, the Timeline is a work in progress. En’s suits of the first decade of the eighteenth century closely resembled those of the 1690s in cut and decoration (Fig. 1 in Womenswear). The coat reached to just below the knees, almost completely concealing the full-cut breeches.

The majority of the crew were accommodated in two- or four-berth cabins, with showers and toilets at the end of each alleyway. Officers were accommodated in single cabins with private in-suite bathrooms located on Sun Deck. Althea Wynne’s sculpture of the White Horses of the Atlantic Ocean was installed in the Mauretania Restaurant. Two bronze busts were installed—one of Sir Samuel Cunard outside the Yacht Club, and one of Queen Elizabeth II in the Queen’s Room.

This electrical plant, in addition to powering the ship’s auxiliary and hotel services through transformers, drives the two main propulsion motors, one on each propeller shaft. These motors produce 44 MW each and are of synchronised salient-pole construction, nine metres in diameter and weighing more than 400 tons each. On the Upper Deck sits the silver Boston Commemorative Cup, presented to Britannia by the City of Boston in 1840. This cup was lost for decades until it was found in a pawn shop in Halifax, Nova Scotia. On “2” Deck was a bronze entitled Spirit of the Atlantic that was designed by Barney Seale for the second RMSMauretania.

The concrete deck is supported by two planes of stay cables attached to the 120m high reinforced delta-shaped reinforced concrete towers which make the bridge a landmark visible from many of the city’s inner metropolitan suburbs. The idea of a transport tunnel under the harbour was first proposed by two Sydney businessmen in 1885. Their scheme was for twin tunnels, one for trams and one for horses and pedestrians. They offered to build it at their cost but charge a toll over a period of years so as to recoup their investment before handling the tunnels over to the State Government. The proposal was rejected by the Government of the day because it was considered too dangerous.

A series of public lotteries were launched to raise the money to build the Opera House. Tickets were sold at a cost of £3 each, each lottery of 100,000 tickets having a major prize of £200,000. In a tragic turn of events, the son of one of the winners, 8-year old Graeme Thorne, was kidnapped, held to ransom then murdered after the ransom was paid. A change of Government in May 1965 saw Robert Askin take over as the new Premier of NSW and David Hughes as minister for Public Works, under whose portfolio the building of the Opera House came. Alarmed that the estimated cost of the poject had risen by 600% to £25 million, Hughes asked Utzon for a likely completion date and final cost.

Construction was planned in three sections – the building of the podium; the roof shells; finishing, equipment and furnishing. Utzon hailed from the small village of Hellebaek on Denmark’s northern sea coast. His fascination with a nearby castle as a boy gave birth to his interest in architecture. Air travel between Australia and Europe entered digital deck covers a new phase with the introduction of the Lockheed Constellation on the Kangaroo Run. Constellations were much faster, bigger and more economical than any flying boat, and paved the way for jet age. The first Constellation, which had been introduced by both Qantas and B.O.A.C. onto the London-Sydney route, landed at Mascot in December 1947.

They were originally made with golden threads, but much of this was lost when they were incorrectly cleaned during the 1987 refit. The designers included numerous pieces of artwork within the public rooms of the ship, as well as maritime artefacts drawn from Cunard’s long history of operating merchant vessels. S advanced interior design was demonstrated was the first class lounge, the Queen’s Room on Quarter Deck. In addition, the structural columns were flared at the top to blend into the ceiling and to lose the visual indication of low ceiling height that straight columns would have given.

Rectangular in shape with a central core, the building has 64 levels with 10 basement levels for parking and plant facilities and a typical floor area of 1872 sq m , it is a typical office block skyscraper of recent years. Governor Phillip Tower is located within the first Government House site which is in the heart of Sydney’s CBD and is bounded by Bridge, Phillip, Bent and Young streets. The site contains heritage listed terrace housing along both Young and Phillip streets as well as the important remnants of the footings of both the original, and many extensions to, the first Government House. The shaft supporting the turret is made up of 46 barrel units, each weighing 27 tonnes.

In June 1987 an agreement was signed for the Sydney Harbour Tunnel Company, a company formed by the Joint Venture, to design, construct and operate the Tunnel. The period of operation would be 30 years, finishing in the year 2022 at which time the Tunnel would be handed over to the Government of NSW free of all costs. Described at the time as the ugliest bridge in Sydney, it had a centre span which was raised and lowered by a spider-like maze of girders, pulleys and cables hovering above it and mounted on the adjacent piers. Complete with a roadway, footway and tram tracks, it was built as a temporary measure only, but worked well, even though it was designed and constructed in a space of less than 12 months. The current bridge, a higher, 4-lane structure with a single-leaf electrically operated bascule span, replaced the earlier structure in 1949. As with the previous crossings, increased traffic have turned the bridge into a bottleneck.
