CC Thompson Pottery ceased operations in 1938. They had tried to update the plant, by adding a tunnel kiln, but the flood of 1936 appears to have been the final straw.

At some point near the end of the crossing, Dale would capture the image of another ship that would be made famous by disaster, the four funnel R.M.S. Lusitania, the sinking of which by another U-boat, got the United States started on the path to war with Germany.

Five years later, the Carpathia became somewhat famous when it was the first ship to assist the survivors of the Titanic.

Their ship was the Carpathia.

The Thompson's made the crossing via the Cunard Line.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
