   Treasure ship! The words exert a powerful mythic pull on the imagination but elude easy definition. For most of us they suggest Spanish galleons or Portuguese East Indiamen with billowing sails, wooden hulls and holds crammed with silver dollars or gold escudos. None of this has much to do with the giant passenger liners that plied between New York and Liverpool in the early years of this century, with their compound engines, steel rivets and electric lighting. And yet, surprisingly, it was the first fifty years of the twentieth century that witnessed the greatest and final flowering of the entire treasure ship era.
