SS Leviathan

    Discusses news that New York shipbuilders are constructing 'a ship so tremendously long, that there is no part of the ocean sufficiently broad to enable it to turn'. Adds that the latter problem has been solved by having wheels at its American and English ends which will mean that passengers will simply be able to walk between the two countries. Notes that the ship will also boast cabstands, an omnibus, and shops.
