This talk explores the early history of the famous Cunard Line - from its formation 175 years ago to the sinking of the RMS Lusitania in 1915.

Cunard has been a household name in maritime passenger travel for 175 years, but where did it all start? Why did Cunard build Lusitania and how did she differ from her predecessors? Fierce competition and Cunard’s rapid growth led to the company’s decision to build two giant vessels each over 700ft long – Lusitania & Mauretania – the fastest and largest liners of their day.

Join us for a Batavia Lecture as maritime historian Chris Frame discusses Cunard’s contribution to the race for British supremacy on the North Atlantic, focusing on Lusitania’s success as a transatlantic ‘greyhound’, a role she later continued during World War I, which ended in tragedy one hundred years ago.

Cost: $12 per person. Includes light refreshments after the lecture.

Bookings: Essential online or call 1300 134 081. Please RSVP by 5.00pm, Wednesday 10 June.
