RMS Lusitania warping into doc after record breaking run from Queenstown, Ireland, to New York City, New York, September 13, 1907. Thousands crowded the river shores and all the fleet in the New York Harbor tooted shrill welcome when Lusitania arrived after lowering the record from Queenstown to 5 days and 54 minutes. The Lusitania’s sister ship was the Mauretania. George C. Bain Collection. Courtesy of the Library of Congress. (2016/10/14).
