Although the railways adopted the grand heraldry, classic architecture and solid signwriting in the 1830s and 40s to reassure an intensely sceptical and frightened public that the railways were safe and permanent, and altogether a Good Thing. Often, the biggest shams and scams had the most elaborate heraldry... I'm sure these particular boatbuilders don't have the same intentions!
