  7. After her new scent being compared to “a tank of embalming fluid,” Suzan makes a dash for it — despite the stormy weather. The heavy downpour works in her favor, however; and the park attendant who goes after her is entranced by of all things, her smell — that of a fresh summer’s rain!

    The floating Episcopal church in Philadelphia was built in 1849 and is believed to be the first floating church on the East Coast. It was a project of the Churchman’s Missionary Association for Seamen and was devoted to serving sailors. The church moored at the foot of Dock Street in Philadelphia until reconsecrated to a New Jersey parish in 1853 and placed on a brick foundation. The building burned down 1868.

  15. RMS Queen Mary is a retired ocean liner that sailed the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for the Cunard Line (Cunard-White Star when the vessel entered service).

    Built by John Brown and Company, Clydebank, Scotland, she was designed to be the first of Cunard’s planned two-ship weekly express service from Southampton to Cherbourg to New York, in answer to the mainland European superliners of the late 1920s and early 1930s.

    After their release from World War II troop transport duties, Queen Mary and her running mate RMS Queen Elizabeth commenced this two-ship service and continued it for two decades until Queen Mary’s retirement in 1967.

    The ship is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is permanently berthed in Long Beach, California serving as a museum ship and hotel.
