Excerpt from Boys' and Girls' Bookshelf, Vol. 15: Book of Wonders and Curious Things (Part 1)

Her length-about 750 feet - exceeds that of two towering Skyscrapers placed one on top of the other; and her funnels, being 24 feet in diameter, would easily admit a couple of full Sized trolley - cars driven abreast throughout their whole length of 155 feet! Passengers taking their morning stroll on deck will understand that a circuit of the Ship three and a half times means covering almost exactly a mile.

As the vessel lies on the ways, one obtains an admirable idea of her vastness. It is like looking up at one of the pyramids; only, instead of rising from a desert, the towering hull commands one of the busiest industrial hives of men. Stand on the forecastle in the very eyes of the levia than, and the ground is nearly 100 feet below.
