SECRETS OF THE GREAT OCEAN LINERS by John G. Sayers (The Bodleian Library £25)
Before the dawn of commercial transatlantic flights in the 1950s, any globetrotting was done by sea.
In this history of that golden age of ocean liner travel, Sayers examines every aspect of a voyage, from booking a cabin (central ones were the most desirable as they rocked less) to onboard activities (the shoe hunt was a favourite among the ladies).
This immersive read takes you across the world — a real treat at a time when we’re marooned in our own living rooms.
