Ouch

On this day in 1951, the R.M.S. Queen Mary docked in New York after a rough journey across the Atlantic. Passengers arrived with cuts and bruises, and one crewmember had to be hospitalized. It would be another seven years before the ship would be fitted with stabilizers to lessen her tendency to roll in storms.
