SS Great Britain with moon and NHS bannerDownload

The "Flower Moon" the last supermoon this spring is seen over Bristol Docks and the ship the SS Great Britain which also has a "Thank you NHS" banner displayed in front of the ship to thank the NHS for their work during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Launched in 1843 the SS Great Britain was the longest passenger ship in the world from 1845 to 1854. She was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for the Great Western Steamship Company's transatlantic service between Bristol and New York City. While other ships had been built of iron or equipped with a screw propeller, the Great Britain was the first to combine these features in a large ocean-going ship. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
