Bill Miller, knwon as “Mr. Ocean Liner,” is set to give a talk, Floating Palaces: The Great Atlantic Liners, on Thursday, January 30th, from 6 to 8 pm, at the National Lighthouse Museum in Staten Island.
Ocean Liners were the mechanic marvels of their time, with their top deck suites and salons to lower-deck steerage, the race for speed, the lavish interiors and soldiers onboard during wartime.
Bill Miller is an international authority on the subject of ocean liners and cruise ships, including those “floating palaces” of the past, as well as the current generation of “floating resorts.” Miller has written over 80 books on the subject: from early steamers, immigrant ships and liners at war to other titles on their fabulous interiors. He has written specific histories of such celebrated passenger ships as the United States, Queen Mary, Rotterdam, France, Queen Elizabeth 2, Costa Victoria, Super Star Leo and Crystal Serenity.
Admission is $10 for guests, $5 for Museum Members.
The National Lighthouse Museum is located at 200 The Promenade at Lighthouse Point, St. George, (adjacent to the free Staten island Ferry), Staten Island. For more information or to make reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org, call (718) 390-0040, or click here.
