A life on the ocean wave...

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

AN AN­TIQUES ex­pert from the BBC An­tiques Road­show gave an en­ter­tain­ing talk about the story of cruis­ing to the Hedger­ley His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety on Satur­day.

Writer, lec­turer, broad­caster and cu­ra­tor Paul At­ter­bury is known to mil­lions of view­ers of the popular TV pro­gramme. He spe­cialises in the art and de­sign of the 19th and 20th cen­turies and has been a mem­ber of the team of ex­perts for 24 years.

Mr At­ter­bury’s talk was en­ti­tled Port Out­ward, Star­board Home, which gave rise to the word ‘posh’ – it was only the well-to-do who could af­ford cab­ins on those sides of the ships to en­sure they got the best of the sun on both the out­ward and re­turn jour­neys.

He took a nos­tal­gic look at the story of cruis­ing, from the early days of steamships in the Vic­to­rian pe­riod to mod­ern cruise lin­ers, via the great ships and their in­te­ri­ors, the posters and pub­lic­ity, the menus and mem­o­ra­bilia, the food and the fash­ions and clas­sic views of life at sea, past and present.

With cruis­ing hol­i­days more popular than ever, the talk was a voy­age through cruis­ing his­tory. a ground break­ing op­er­a­tion to sep­a­rate twins joined at the head.

Co-writer Pro­fes­sor Cary Cooper, of­fers his ex­pert ad­vice on cop­ing with stress and the fore­word for the book has been writ­ten by Kelly Hop­pen MBE, in­ter­na­tional in­te­rior de­signer, en­tre­pre­neur and business in­vestor on Dragons’ Den.
