    Oren, how do you define a scrapture? Is it a picture of a scrap or perhaps a sculpture made of scrap materials? Alan

    Hello Alan ! In this particular case this is the painting of the '' ss Great Eastern ''

    The Boat itself was the dream of Mr. Kingdom Brunel who wanted it to be his crowning achievement, you could call it the post '' Railway mania '' Titanic

    Like the Titanic the '' Great Eastern '' was cursed from the start and was forced into early retirement, from state of the art cruise ship ... to laying down the transatlantic Telegraph Cabling.

    It went from Kingdom's perfect rapture
    to a heap of morbid scrap on Liverpool's Mersey shores.

    It is said that so much of the ship was to be used in assembling anything from Ships to Buildings ...

    That many say the city of Liverpool was the first ever Scrapture of the modern age.

    There is a famous curse around the ship too, when it was disassembled, check it out ?

    Well, it might surprise you that the Great Eastern was actually launched on the slipway of our backyard.

    Yes, I know a little bit about IKB, his engineering glory and the Great Eastern Slipway and its story (including the mother and child). Come to think of it, it's his 100th year this year!

    Very interesting blog post.

    Well Well !

    of all the coincidences !
    I have a bit of a fascination with shipwrecks...

    it's almost like a revolution isn't it ...

    a Majestic failure, that men can fester on.

    I guess that some might say that Scrapture is almost like men being a bird, creating an eccentric nest.

    Rearranging one man's order into our own.

    Scrapture, a revolution ?

    Scrapture is what makes us the scavengers, feasting on technical carcasses.
