We drove down to Liverpool today, to Albert Dock, where thousands of Latter-Day Saints (among millions of people) embarked on ships to travel to America and start new lives.
We visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum and learned about the nasty conditions those first emigrants had to endure to get to the new world. We also learned about the sinking of the Titanic, the Lusitania, and the Empress of Ireland. All three went down within a three year period (the Lusitania was sunk by a German U-boat) and the Empress of Ireland, which ran into another ship, lost more passengers than the other two. They call her the Forgotten Empress.
And of course they've got all kinds of things about the Beatles.
This is what they call the large speed-bump cross-walks here.
I really like that name. :)
