Reported this day in 1934:
Reward for Rapid Work
So rapid has been the progress on the Clyde with the giant new Cunard-White Star liner No. 534, that 2,000 workers will be allowed 12 days holiday for the Glasgow Fair next month.
Experiments are being carried out with a new type of lifeboat. It is likely that instead of being lowered in the usual way from the davits, the lifeboats will be controlled by an electric lever.
