150,000 Inhabitants



From The Montreal Gazette on this day in 1936:

Oil for Giant Liner

The Shell Oil Company had delivered its first load of lubricating oil to the big liner, Queen Mary, now nearing completion on the Clyde. The oil will be used in the turbo-generators employed in connection with the ship's main propelling machinery, and also for those which provide electricity for lights, steering engines, elevators, etc. The generators are powerful enough to supply electricity for a city of 150,000 inhabitants.
