>>> Kalakala – The World’s First Streamlined Vessel

Another interesting Navagear post recently included some pictures of the now defunct and abandoned Kalakala (scroll down part way). From there I found the web site of the ship itself, with lots of pictures of her from her heyday.

A luxuriously appointed ferry, in an "art deco" style with streamlined hull and superstructure, it’s just a really neat looking ship. Sad that it seems to be rotting away now. I don’t know if the efforts to save it are still active or not, but might be worth checking out.
