Last week I gave the dimensions of the Shannon River:
Length: 770 feet
Breadth: 3 feet 6 inches
Depth: 1 foot 3 inches
Longest straight stretch: 90 feet
Tunnels: 6, totalling 356 feet, the longest 100 feet.
I added that it had a monorail link.
And so it did, in Bombay in 1902, at Lady Northcote’s Fancy Fete and Shannon River Show, with boats, a mono-rail, frocks, shamrocks and Art. Irresistible.
