How very interesting!

I came to North America twice as an immigrant. The second time as a boy of 16 on board the Queen Elizabeth ALONE, i.e. without my parents, a la Leonardo DiCapria. But the first time, I was a small boy who came with the family on the Aquitania from Southampton to Halifax. The Aquitania was a Cunard Line sister ship to the Mauretania, just to pull that into perspective. I've always wondered whether there was any musical carry over from sail to steam.


All the best,
