Missing the Boat


From the New York Times on this day in 1949:

Shipping News and Notes; Queen Mary Sails, With 3, Delayed by Wreck, Stranded on Pier

The Cunard White Star liner Queen Mary sailed for Cherbourg and Southampton at 1:40 P.M. yesterday leaving three breathless would-be passengers stranded on the pier.
