Last month, a select group of Conservancy members were given the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance to climb aboard the SS United States for a special, extensive tour with Crossing on Time author, David Macaulay.
As longtime subscribers to this newsletter are aware, David is an award-winning author and illustrator who traveled on the Big U as a boy, relocating to his new home in the US. Crossing on Time is his newly published, lavishly illustrated, and critically acclaimed book featuring America's Flagship, informed by not just his own connection to the vessel, but also by years of painstaking research. He was a fascinating tour guide!
Today, we're delighted to share video highlights of this special tour, which takes viewers on board the SS United States with David Macaulay. The film was shot, produced, and edited by Bill Magee of MageeMedia — a longtime friend of the Conservancy who has regularly lent his video production talents to support the Big U.
The film features rarely seen areas of the SS United States, as well as moving commentary from Conservancy supporters regarding why they feel the ship should be saved.
