"There she lay all the day"



News-Commentary, Drollery


Steamships, Engineering

    Discusses news that the SS Great Britain is 'lying upon the gridiron at Liverpool'. Believes this is 'as bad as a five-barred gate to a vessel like the Great Britain' but suggests that allowing the ship 'a few bars' rest' on a gridiron is desirable after enduring a 'heavy' launch.
