Forgotten History: The SS United States

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Event Details

Christened in 1951, the SS United States was the greatest American ocean liner. On its maiden voyage in 1952, the cruise ship won the Blue Riband for the fastest two-way transatlantic crossing by an ocean-going vessel and has retained it ever since. Using photographic images he took onsite, Frank Stopa will recount the tale of "The Big U", forgotten at the inception of modern air travel and now awaiting an uncertain future at berth in Philadelphia.
