From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on this day in 1937:
LINER DAMAGES CORNER OF PIER
Passengers on Queen Mary Say They Didn't Even Feel Jar.
NEW YORK, Nov. 29. - (AP)- The Queen Mary wrecked a corner of her pier as she docked today, but only welcomers ashore knew anything about it. Passengers in the giant liner said they did not even feel a jar.
Welcomers waving to friends aboard scattered when an officer in the bow of the liner shouted a warning. No one was hurt.
